The Treasury is the Government department which looks after Government spending and the economy, and advises the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Their work includes deciding how much money is available for spending on services like health and schools, deciding what taxes should be raised, and advising on how the banks should be run. They’re the ones who advise the Chancellor on what to say in his Budget each year.
London Youth is excited to be working with the Treasury to run a work experience programme from Monday 11 – Thursday 14 August 2014, giving young people aged 16-19 a sense of the work of the Treasury and what it is like to work at the heart of Government. This will involve:
- Finding out about the work of the Treasury from people who work there
- Skills sessions – to help you develop your presentation skills
- A project – to enable you to put your new found skills and knowledge into practice
- A careers session – to hear from people who work there about how they came to the Treasury, and a chance for you to ask questions
We think this will be an interesting opportunity for anyone who wants to find out what it’s like to work at the heart of Government, or just wants to understand how our Government takes decision about how to raise money and where to spend it.
