The House of Lords Administration offers work placements, for a maximum of one week, to students aged between 15 and 18. Placements are available in June and July only. There is no set limit on the number of placements offered and those seeking placements are allocated to offices according to their preferences. The number of placements which can be made in each individual office is a limiting factor and depends on the predicted workload of the office concerned. In June and July 2011, 46 applications for placements were received, and 26 placements were undertaken.
