Terms & Conditions

  • Please read the Information Pack for important information before submitting your completed application.
  • Placements are full-time, paid, mentored and for a period of up to 6 months duration.

  • The offer of a placement is on the condition that the successful applicant completes a needs assessment. The needs assessment process is a consultative process between WAM, the successful candidate and the employer. The aim of the needs assessment is to identify what, if any, reasonable accommodations will be required on placement. Please note that in order to facilitate a thorough needs assessment process you will be asked to disclose your disability.

To this end, AHEAD fully endorses the principles of Data Protection, as detailed in the Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003. 
  • Information provided on your registration to the database will be utilised in the following ways:
    • To administrate and facilitate WAM work placements in a smooth manner;
    • Where information is provided in relation to reasonable accommodation, this information will be passed on to the relevant employers in order to provide the necessary supports at interview;
    • Some elements of data provided may be used, in aggregated and anonymous form, for research/statistical purposes in order to inform our funders and other interested parties of WAM’s achievements and progress.
