GO Wales: Achieve through Work Experience has been set up to help you to develop and refine your employability skills so that you can increase your chances of obtaining Graduate Level employment upon leaving university.
We will help to set up Work Tasters (lasting up to 3 days) Work Experience (lasting from 3-20 days) and Paid Work Placement Opportunities (21-30 days) tailored specifically to each individual. We can help with Travel Expenses, Lunch Costs, Reasonable adjustments in the work place and Childcare costs if applicable. To be eligible to participate in the programme you must be:
- Under 25 at the point of registering on the programme
And fall into one (or more) of the following categories:
- Have a BME background
- have caring responsibilities
- have been or are in care
- come from a less affluent background – Communities First Areas, Low Participation Neighbourhoods
- have a Disability or Work Limiting Health Condition (WLHC)
If you would like to find out more about the programme and find out if you are eligible to take part, get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our Project Officers will be able to talk you through the process.
NOTE: If you are nearing your 25th Birthday we would urge you to get in touch as soon as possible – due to the way we are funded, you will not be eligible to sign up to the project once you are 25 but we can work with 25 year olds if they have signed up to the project prior to their 25th birthday.
