This chapter examines the development of Labour's skills and training policies and the implementation of these in rural areas in Great Britain. It describes a case study of the ‘New Deal’ in rural Wales and shows that difficulties of delivering a workfare-based national programme in rural labour markets. The chapter explains the partnership frameworks governing the New Deal and highlights clients' perception of the New Deal as a work-for-benefits or make-work scheme rather than a way to gain useful training and work experience that can lead to jobs that people want to do.

Keywords:   training policies, rural areas, Great Britain, New Deal, Wales, rural employment
