Department for Work and Pensions written question – answered on 29th September 2022.
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many young people aged eighteen or younger have undertaken work experience in her Department in the last 12 months; and what proportion of those young people were (a) girls and (b) boys from state schools.
We are unable to answer this question on the grounds of disproportionate cost. Offices around the country work with local schools to offer work experience whilst young people are still in education. Movement to work is offered across the country for young people who are no longer in education and are claiming DWP benefits.
