The Department does not offer any formal work experience opportunities to individuals aged 16 and under.
The Department participates in a number of programmes open to individuals over 16 years old.
The Summer Diversity Internship Programme is a six to nine-week paid internship for individuals in their last year of undergraduate study, organised by Cabinet Office. The Early Diversity Internship Programme is a one-week shadowing opportunity for first year undergraduates, organised by Cabinet Office.
There is also a shorter Work Experience programme for individuals aged 17 to 18, organised by Cabinet Office. We also participate in Movement to Work, a work experience programme for young people (18-30 years old) who are not in education, employment or training.
In 2019 we also ran a Smart Futures programme for young people (16-17 years old). Placements numbers for the last three years are detailed in the below table:
