The Treasury hosts internships which are paid. There were no unpaid work placements over 2 weeks.
The Treasury participates in the formal civil service wide work experience scheme for school and college students. This is part of the government’s social mobility strategy. Work experience of 2 weeks or less is unpaid but there are costs to participating departments i.e. £1000-2000 per student. These costs support activities for the students on career choices, travel expenses and accommodation where the work-experience scheme is residential. The numbers of students hosted from the central scheme are below:
