Work Placements UK (WPUK) has over 20 years experience securing work placements for European nationals in the UK to develop language and work based skills. We do this via individual or group bespoke work experience packages realised through our extensive network of employers and participating families.
We typically work with vocational schools and colleges, independent schools and groups with private or EU funding.
We are able to advise and co-ordinate your own requirements, whatever they may be, as we pride ourselves on the flexibility we can offer our clients.
We organise work experience programmes for groups all over the UK. The most popular centres are Brighton, St Albans, Guildford and Bromley but any location is possible. See here for more details.
WPUK has experience of finding work placements in most fields of work. This expertise ensures that your group gains the specific work experience they need. You tell us what you want and we will find it!
Communication is the key to our successful Work Placement programmes so WPUK will stay in close contact during the placement research stage and offer support once the group are in the UK. WPUK aim to speak to each participant individually and we are committed to finding placements ideally suited to the individual.
WPUK hosts offer bed and breakfast or full board accommodation (to include bed, breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal).
The coach takes the group to a central point where the host families are waiting and a rep ensures the right student goes with the right family. The bus companies we use are all insured and all have seat belts for each student. If the group has fewer than 5 students we may organise for a taxi to collect and drop at the airport. In this case the students will be dropped direct to their host families.
WPUK provides each group leader with a mobile phone number where a message can be left out of hours. In an emergency a WPUK rep will call the group leader and help deal with the situation.
