Youth Training Scheme, 1984

The Youth Training Scheme (YTS) was an on-the-job training course for school leavers aged 16 and 17, managed by the Manpower Services Commission. The Scheme was brought into operation in 1983 by the Conservative Government to replace the Youth Opportunities Programme.

This leaflet, published by Labour Party Young Socialists in 1984, criticises the Scheme as exploiting school leavers for cheap labour and providing little safety training and other protection.
