Training and Work Experience Scheme – TWES – Visas Info
The Training and work experience scheme (TWES) arrangements enable people from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) to undertake work-based training for a professional or specialist qualification, or a period of work experience.
Applications for TWES permits are subject to a charge. The payment guidance leaflet below provides further details of the charge and the process that will need to be followed when making an application.
We periodically revise the guidance notes and application forms to include changes and to improve clarity. They are valid until the use-by date at the top of each downloaded document.
