Covid-19 homepage

Experience of work in health, social care, playwork, early years and childcare services is crucial to bridge the gap between education or training and the world of work. At its best, it can open people’s eyes to jobs they had never thought of, inform career decisions and provide valuable experience for job applications and entry to higher education. Here is guidance for employers, learning providers and learners on work placements.


This guide should be read alongside any policies, procedures and guidance for work placement provided by individual learning providers and/or employers.

For more information on the job roles available, the employers who offer work placement opportunities and to complete an online assessment of suitability to work in health, social care, playwork, early years and childcare visit NHS Wales Careers and WeCareWales websites.
