Work shadowing - Up to three days of unpaid work experience where the student observes someone in their role to understand how they do their job.

You would be helping young students on higher education courses in Wales who face barriers in accessing work experience to develop and refine their employability skills though their work experience with you. These skills will help them become more employable.
"I want to support a student to improve their work - related skills"
If you would like to get involved, please register your interest with your local university. We will add you to our employer database and you may be contacted by a participating university. Because the Programme is student-led, we cannot guarantee that you will be asked to host work experience, and registering an interest does not place you under any obligation to host work experience.
University advisers spend some time with interested students to assess their needs. These advisers then seek suitable work experience opportunities with all kinds of organisations in Wales.
"This will give me a chance to benefit from student skills"
You might decide that you would like to offer further work experience through the Programme, but we will never place you under an obligation to offer more than you think you can.
Employers hosting work experience have the support of a university adviser to help every step of the way.
