What Next : Where can I find apprenticeships & training opportunities?

The Work Placement Programme


The Work Placement Programme

The WPP operated provides a nine month unpaid placement for recent graduates and people who are unemployed. The placements are full time and you do not have to be in receipt of a social welfare payment to qualify. Alternatively, if you are on a social welfare payment for at least three months, you may be able to keep your payment but you must get approval from the Department of Social Protection first. For a work placement please contact your local Employment Services/Intreo office. 

Please note that FÁS and the local VEC have been merged and replaced by the Local Education and Training Board. Existing services will continue to be available until the merge is complete under the newly formed  further education and training authority SOLAS (Seirbhísí Oideachais Leanunaigh agus Scileanna).
