Work Integrated Learning 2012 - Toolkit for Employers and Industry
The IRU have developed a range of practical tools to help business and industry engage with universities, to work together to develop Australia's future skilled workforce.
The practice is commonly known as Work Integrated Learning (WIL) and involves bringing together the theory of a discipline and its relevant work practice.
There are a range of mutual benefits for industry, universities and students who engage in work integrated learning.
Developed by the IRU, these resources have received input from industry peak bodies including the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI), the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI), the Australian Industry Group (AIG) and the Business Council of Australia (BCA).
The documents are designed for employers and industry and include:
- An introduction and benefits of Work Integrated Learning
- A practical checklist
- Roles and responsibilities of the workplace supervisor
