After Third Level

The WAM Programme - Willing Able Mentoring

Willing Able Mentoring (WAM) is a work placement programme which aims to promote access to the labour market for graduates with disabilities and build the capacity of employers to integrate disability into the mainstream workplace.

How does WAM work?

Participating employers (WAM Leaders) collaborate with WAM to offer mentored, paid work placements for graduates with disabilities. This partnership brings graduates with disabilities and WAM’s network of employers together so that both can benefit from each other - ensuring genuine learning opportunities for all.

WAM is unique in that it seeks to engage and support employers in order to simultaneously develop the potential of employers and graduates with disabilities.

To apply for any WAM Placements and to be informed of WAM opportunities as they arise, please register on our WAMWorks Database

Details of the AHEAD WAM Programme are available here.
