The purpose of the Industry Based Learning unit is to allow students an opportunity to gain a discipline-based professional work placement with an approved host organisation. The placement should further the interests of both the student and the host organisation. However, the placement is not solely about ‘work experience’, it is a placement with significant educational learning outcomes linked to life long learning competencies and employability skills, but with a focus on the transfer of disciplinary knowledge and skills. It therefore seeks to expose students to professional standards and to explore the links between theory and practice both in a formal workplace setting and through curriculum based reflective practice.
