GO Wales for Employers

Are you interested in helping students to develop skills for the workplace? Would you like the opportunity to talent-spot and benefit from new ideas?

​The Achieve through Work Experience Programme is looking for organisations to host tailored, flexible work experience for higher education students in Wales who face barriers in securing work experience. We work with all kinds of employers in Wales to source opportunities for:

  • Work shadowing – up to three days of unpaid work experience observing someone in their role to understand how they do their job.
  • Work tasters – up to four weeks of unpaid work experience where the student has the opportunity to learn about work and the working environment by observing and undertaking some tasks.
  • Work Placements – four to six weeks of paid work experience getting hands-on experience or working on a project. 50% funding is available through the GO Wales Programme.

Project Advisers will support employers and students to develop bespoke work experience opportunities a​nd ensure their successful completion.

To find out more or to register your interest, please contact our Cardiff Met GO Wales or Tel: 029 2041 6333.

Further details about the programme can be found on the GO Wales website​​.

The GO Wales: Achieve through Work Experience Programme is part-financed by the European Social Fund (ESF) through the Welsh Government.
