The Work Choice programme is voluntary and people cannot be mandated on to it. However, often people are forced on to the programme as otherwise they will be mandated to join the Work Programme. Work Choice replaced Work preparation and WorkSTEP in June 2011. It's open to those who have a disability or illness that seriously affects their ability to find and sustain employment. Otherwise, it's organised similarly to The Work Programme. There are a series of Prime providers who are given the contract to run Work Choice in certain areas of the country (the CPA). They either run the service themselves or they contract out the work to a subcontractor who runs the service for them.
