Work experience project

Work experience project

A project to provide a greater range of work experience opportunities across the county for school pupils (16+), college students and adults looking to re-train is being launched next year.

The scheme has been developed by Pembrokeshire College’s employment bureau and the Department of Works and Pensions within the county.

Speaking about the project, Iwan Thomas CEO of PLANED said: “PLANED welcomes the opportunity to be a key contributor to this innovative project within Pembrokeshire, led by the Public Service Board. It very much aligns with our organisational focus to move towards incorporating the views of young people as part of communities within the county. This includes working across different sectors to help achieve sustainable skills and opportunities to help our communities to continue to thrive.

Working in collaboration with the Pembrokeshire Public Services Board and its partners, a guide has been compiled explaining the benefits of the project to companies, communities, and individuals.

The project will be officially launched in April 2020, but anyone interested in finding out more about it should contact Beth Schooling at Pembrokeshire College on 01437 753155.
