Employability

Find out how to apply for one of our Work Placements and Work Skills Days

Whizz-Kidz provides work placements to disabled young people in two ways - either a company will offer us a placement and we'll find someone to fill it, or you can get in contact and ask us for a specific placement and we'll do our best to find it! 

You can apply for a Work Placement using our online application form.

If you'd like to speak to us about a different placement, or to find out about others we have on offer, please email workplacements@whizz-kidz.org.uk or call on 0800 151 3350.

Louis' Story

"I would definitely encourage anyone thinking of doing Whizz-Kidz experience to jump at the opportunity!"

Meet Louis, who completed one of our virtual work placement with Great Western Railway.

I've found my virtual work experience with Whizz-Kidz and GWR really useful. It’s given me plenty of ideas and tips on how to progress on to my chosen passion, which is to be a train driver.

This whole experience has definitely increased my confidence in my abilities to get a career and what is entailed in the working environment. It's helped developed my independence, to ask questions, log onto zoom, and be responsible for time management.
