Departmental Work Experience

Volume 503: debated on Thursday 14 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many graduate internships her Department has provided in the last 12 months; how many such internships were subsequently withdrawn; for what reasons; and if she will make a statement. (310432)

[holding answer 12 January 2010]: DWP has advertised 82 Graduate Internship positions via the Graduate Talent Pool website since the Programme started in July 2009.

Three positions have had to be withdrawn. Two positions were withdrawn as internal candidates filled the positions, while the other was withdrawn due to lack of funding.
