WIL engages students in a community or industry setting.

Collaborative engagement with industry takes place via research, consultancy, workforce-development and through work-integrated learning activities. Our students learn and work with our industry and community partners via work integrated learning (WIL) experiences that are a positive feature of our programs.

Students apply recently acquired knowledge and learn new professional skills as well as develop generic attributes such as interpersonal skills in work and organisational settings. Industry and community partners have access to the energy, knowledge and skills of students as well as the chance of building networks with potential future employees.

The InPlace WIL system is an integrated management system that supports the administration of WIL processes. The Inplace system will assit schools in sourcing and managing WIL activities.
