Work Experience Placements
Cadw is the historic environment service of the Welsh Government. We offer work placement opportunities for a range of schemes through from unpaid work experience for school age young people (age 14 – 18) through to 50-week paid sandwich course placements for under-graduates. Placement schemes aimed at students 18 years or older are usually advertised throughout Wales with applications accepted through an organised process to ensure fairness of opportunity for all. Details of placement schemes available can be found on the Welsh Government website www.wales.gov.uk along with how to apply.
Cadw understands the importance of work experience and is committed to providing worthwhile structured placements. For this reason, we are only able to accommodate a limited number of student placements each year, each lasting up to a maximum of two weeks.
Each placement request received is considered separately. In making the decision to accept or decline we take into account the following:
- the length of time and location of the placement
- requirements of the student
- whether a suitable project can be set up
- staffing resources
- work commitments
- holiday commitments
