GetAHEAD is an initiative of AHEAD which has been running since 2005. It is a network of student and graduates with disabilities currently making the transition from third-level education to full time employment.
GetAHEAD works to up-skill graduates with disabilities by providing training events and valuable information covering a wide range of topics and resources which we will be discussing. 
The WAM programme is the transition to employment initiative of AHEAD. It offers graduates with disabilities the benefit of a 6 month minimum fully paid and mentored work internship with high profile employers.
WAM was established in 2005 and, to date, have placed over 650 graduates with both private and public sector employers.
