UKWP places trainees in companies across the UK. These companies are from a variety of sectors and vary in size, but all have appreciated the injection of fresh ideas, enthusiasm and motivation that trainees bring under the Leonardo da Vinci and Erasmus+ programmes.
Trainees gain invaluable experience that can not be bought, and host companies gain fresh perspective and an enthused workforce, so both parties benefit.
Our host companies are local, national and international businesses, with a lot to offer to our trainees. They have seen the advantages of offering placements and like to offer regular placements.
The work experience placement programmes are funded by the European Commission so there are no costs incurred by companies. The funding covers all or part of; travel to and from the UK, accommodation, living costs, local transport, cultural visits, and health insurance. The funding also covers an intensive language course for the trainees, which is usually offered in the UK prior to the placement start date.
We are constantly making links with new companies who are interested in making space in their business for trainee placements. For more information on becoming a host company please contact the UKWP team.
