The aspects of the program are:

      • Once participants have reached a satisfactory level of job-readiness, we arrange a 6-week volunteer placement,
      • Participants understand that this non-paid placement will benefit their immersion into the workforce and development of skills,
      • WEST will undertake the responsibility of workplace liability, as the participants are considered WEST trainees for the duration of the placement.
