Matt Hancock says plan for jobseekers between 18 and 21 to be placed on intensive activity programme is not a form of punishment

The senior Conservative, who heads David Cameron’s earn or learn taskforce, will set out plans for jobseekers aged between 18 and 21 to be placed on an intensive activity programme within the first three weeks of submitting a claim.

They will get an initial three-week intensive course of practising job applications and interviews, which will then be regularly reviewed by a dedicated job coach.

The new requirements, outlined on Monday, will be in place by April 2017
