Work integrated learning
Work Integrated Learning (WIL) helps bridge the gap between theory and practice by providing opportunities for students to gain hands-on, practical experience. It also allows employees to help shape the graduates of tomorrow.
WIL describes a range of approaches that integrate theory with the practice and experience of work. Common WIL activities include work placements, internships or projects in the workplace, completion of case studies, service learning, work shadowing and simulations on campus.
A number of organisations have collaborated to develop Australia's first ever National Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Strategy. The strategy is designed to increase WIL opportunities to build the productive capacity of Australia's workforce, improve graduate job prospects and meet the skills needs of employers.
