Pathways to Work 2015 commits to a rolling programme of process and programme evaluations of PtW reforms. The 2016-2020 strategy further commits to building the evidence base through research and evaluation to inform the design and delivery of enhanced services to people who are unemployed.​ The evaluation sub-group of the Labour Market Council monitors progress on the programme, providing technical inputs and peer-reviewing outputs. 
Two evaluations are currently underway:


1. Evaluation of Intreo Reforms
2. Evaluation of JobsPlus
