72. To ask the Minister for Social Protection the number of young persons who have been offered and completed a personal progression plan as part of the Youth Guarantee in 2014 and to date in 2015; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [27281/15]
From 1 January 2014 to 6 July 2015, a total of 9,073 jobseekers completed a Personal Progression Plan (PPP), while under 25 years of age on the date of completion. The completion of a PPP is a unique feature of the activation and case management process within the INTREO service model. The figure does not, therefore, include clients who availed of employment supports outside the INTREO service, for example, through the Local Employment Services.
