Work integrated learning: Work based learning
Work based learning (WBL) units allow students to identify a business problem in their current place of employment, and be eligible for a credit toward their degree.
A key advantage of WBL is that it is available to students already in paid employment*, allowing them to participate in WIL units without having to forgo hours in their paid role. WBL allows a student to identify and apply coursework theories and practices to address a real problem within their organisation.
*You must have been working with your current organisation for more than six months.
The program aims to:
- enhance and apply academic learning in the workplace
- critically appraise and demonstrate development of discipline specific knowledge, skills and dispositions required for advancement in a professional setting
- allow employers access to the latest in academic knowledge and skills through their employee
- develop citizenship, generic skills and graduate learning outcomes that enhance future employment.
