ABSTRACT
This article attempts to explore the relationship between the implementation of social goals in employment policy, the operation of segmentation in the labour market, and the fate of members of so-called 'ethnic minorities' in the labour market. Previous research had suggested that social goals in labour market policy were very difficult to defend against the power of economic efficiency criteria, which seemed to penetrate the implementation apparatus at all stages. Research into the British Youth Training Scheme provided the authors with the chance to examine the way in which values about race were aligned to efficiency values in the implementation of an equal opportunities policy within the scheme in such a way as to undermine the social goals of that policy.
