Parliamentary work placement and Apprenticeship Programme
The Houses of Parliament are determined to be a rewarding, inclusive and diverse place to work. Parliament has set up three schemes to offer opportunities to individuals who would not previously have thought to work here. These schemes offer the chance to work both for the House Service and for a Member of Parliament and provide opportunities to increase their employability for the future.
The united aim of the schemes is to try to reach out to the widest possible pool of talent and attract people who may not have considered a career in Parliament.
Set up by The Creative Society and Robert Halfon MP, the Parliamentary Academy is the first apprentice school in the UK Parliament.
This Scheme provides a nine-month paid work experience placement designed to open up Parliament to people from disadvantaged backgrounds who are interested in politics
