Embedding WIL in Programs

WIL activities impact the work-readiness, employability and professionalism of our graduates.

WIL activities are aimed at developing and enhancing employability skills and graduate capabilities in realistic work contexts. Embedding WIL into a program requires significant thought to the goals of doing WIL and:

  • the various types of scaffolded WIL activities throughout the whole program
  • preparing the students for WIL and monitoring their progress
  • the assessment and evaluation of WIL activities.

The types of WIL embedded in programs will differ according to discipline and professional accreditation requirements. The nature of the industry or community can also have a significant bearing on the type of WIL adopted in RMIT programs. For example, the scale and nature of some design areas makes scalable placement schemes difficult and lends itself to innovative industry and community based projects that occur on campus and/or online.
