We organise hundreds of Work Placements each year, working with local employers to encourage them to participate in the Work Placement scheme and then advertising these placement vacancies to interested students and graduates.
You can view and apply for any of our Work Placements online. The employer chooses who to interview and who to employ for their advertised placement.
If appointed you will receive an induction from your GO Wales Adviser and then ongoing contact as required for both you and your host employer to get the most of out the Work Placement.
We have launched a new online application system which will improve the way that you apply for GO Wales Work Placements.
The new online system has been developed to help you make good quality applications by streamlining the process so that you won't have to upload and store CVs and covering letters. Instead it focuses on specific sections including; your education, work experience and skills.
You will benefit from:
Whilst on placement you have the opportunity to gain a short but high-level, work-based qualification, the City & Guilds Professional Development Award. The qualification is FREE as GO Wales covers the entire cost.
For more information on the PDA, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I am very pleased to have had the opportunity to take part in the scheme – it looks great on my CV and I am staying on with my host company for a further period of time. I have learned a lot as a result of the GO Wales Professional Development qualification, and have been given greater responsibility in the company because of it. I would encourage other graduates on a Work Placement to go for it! The Award is extremely worthwhile and is of great benefit to you and your employers.”
