This guideline is for Trial Providers, and unless otherwise stated, applies only to Enhanced Services Participants. 

The National Work Experience Programme (NWEP) provides eligible Participants with the opportunity to undertake real life work experience placements. It helps people to gain experience and confidence, while demonstrating their skills to potential employers.

Under the NWEP, Trial Providers may Provide or Broker up to a maximum of four (4) weeks of unpaid work experience.

Before starting an NWEP Activity, the Trial Provider, Activity Host Organisation and Participant must agree to the terms of the NWEP Activity and sign a Work Experience Activity Agreement. The Trial Provider is also required to complete a risk assessment for each Participant and NWEP Activity.
