Work Experience

Volume 488: debated on Wednesday 25 February 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether the proposed new national internship scheme will apply to the Civil Service. (258591)

I have been asked to reply.

The Government are committed to helping new graduates into work in these challenging economic times and one of our proposals is to increase the availability of graduate internships across a wide range of sectors. It is as yet too early for me to say exactly where those additional internships will be available, but we are currently consulting key stakeholders, including other civil service employers, about the development of our proposal.
