The WAM Programme
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. 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 date, the AHEAD WAM Programme has provided over 300 placements for graduates with disabilities in some of Ireland’s largest companies including:
