Work Integrated Learning with CDU
Australian employers prefer graduates with previous workplace experience.
Innovative Research Universities (IRU) and The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) are collaborating to increase the opportunities for students and employers to develop the future workforce.
WIL stands for Work Integrated Learning, an umbrella term used to describe a range of approaches that integrate theory with the practice of work within a purposefully designed curriculum.
The most common form of WIL involves a student placement or project within a workplace. Universities, students and employers work together to design and create a learning experience that benefits all parties. The student's progress and learning outcomes are monitored and assessed by the university, with input from the employer.
For more information, see our brochure about WIL and the key benefits for employers.

In 2010 we jointly produced seven case studies designed to provide employers with information about work integrated learning and how it might work within various organisations.
These case studies are examples from around Australia, across a range of industries and business sizes. Read our case studies.
