(9)   Work for the Dole is a work experience programme. Employment is not a stated objective of the programme, however, the valuable work experience gained through the programme combined with the continued support of the Job Network, supports the objectives of the APM. The Post-Programme Monitoring (PPM) survey conducted by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR) measures job seekers’ outcomes three months after they have left assistance. PPM survey results are an estimate of outcomes levels based on responses from a sample of clients rather than the full population. Aggregated outcomes estimates for Work for the Dole for the Fairfield/Liverpool ESA are shown in Table 8. Table 8 includes (a) the total proportion in employment and (b) the proportions in (i) full-time, (ii) part-time and (iii) casual employment 3 months after exiting their placements.
