The Youth Training Scheme (YTS) is one of a number of training programmes administered by the Manpower Services Commission (MSC) in the UK. From its introduction in the spring of 1983 YTS offered one year of combined training and work experience to all 16-year-old school leavers and to all unemployed 17-year-old school leavers. In its three years of operation between April 1983 and March 1986 the 1- year programme, now super-ceded by a 2-year Youth Training Scheme (YTS), catered for over one million young adults.
