Embedding WIL in Programs
WIL activities aim to make an impact on the work-readiness, employability and professionalism of our graduates.
Work Integrated Learning (WIL) opportunities are aimed at enhancing student problem solving competencies and capabilities of practice in realistic work contexts. These are the crucial, holistic abilities and skills of practice in a work situation that employers and community expect of our graduates.
The nature of the industry and community can have a significant bearing on the type of WIL adopted in RMIT programs. So, for example, the scale and nature of some design areas makes placement schemes difficult and points to industry and community based projects that occur on campus. These projects are negotiated to ensure that course/program learning outcomes are addressed and industry/community needs are also achieved. The mutual benefit of these WIL projects ensures that all stakeholders are satisfied and helps form strong relationships with industry and community.
