DWP’s work experience programme is intended to support young people aged 18-30 years old, who are facing difficulty getting into work.

We will help you gain greater self-confidence, and improve your organisational, communications and team working/collaboration skills – key skills that employers are looking for. The work experience includes a personal learning journey that develops you as a leader and helps you with your wellbeing and resilience.
We offer a wide variation of activities including job-shadowing, observing at appeals tribunal, CV writing, job applications, mock interviews, confidence building, communication and IT skills. Participants will be closely mentored throughout the 4 weeks.
