This student programme was sponsored by the British Ministry of Magic, offering seventh-year students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry a chance to experience different wizarding careers first-hand before graduation. Participants were supervised by Ministry employees, who would assign them to various tasks and real-world incidents that the Ministry was investigating.

It had been organised for several years as of the 1990–1991 school year.[2]

History

At some point before 1990, Amos Diggory, an employee at the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, was in charge of the programme.[2]

During the 1990–1991 school year, it was overseen by Wilkie Twycross.[1] Headmaster Albus Dumbledore sent several seventh-year students to the Ministry to receive their assignments.[3]

Jacob's sibling and Nymphadora Tonks were assigned to Alastor Moody at the Auror Office; Charlie Weasley and Liz Tuttle to the Improper Use of Magic Office; Barnaby Lee and Ben Copper to the Misuse of Muggle Artefacts Office.[6] Jacob's sibling, Barnaby, Charlie and Liz were later reassigned to the Beast Division in the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures for related tasks.[5] Later still, Jacob's sibling and Ben were reassigned to the Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes.[9]
