(297382)

The table repeats the information in the previous reply about participation in work trials, but with columns added to show the number of people who found actual employment with the work trial employer:

Note:

The totals of the in-month figures are lower than the cumulative number of work trials completed. This is because the in-month figures are a snapshot taken on a particular date in the month, whereas the cumulative total figure reflects subsequent work trials that took place.
