Work-based learning (WBL) in the form of work placements and traineeships (WPT) provide an important source of skills and competency enhancement in a HE environment increasingly concerned with satisfying both the needs of students to be prepared for the workplace as well as the expectations of their future employers. However, work placements and traineeships can be a challenge to set-up, maintain, and innovate successfully within HE.
To respond to this concern, WEXHE Project invites academic staff from different backgrounds to join a four-day workshop where they will be introduced to different strategies and techniques that will help them set-up and reflect on ways to promote these courses. The workshop is free of charge and there will be a travel subsidy for participants.* Attendance in all four days is mandatory.
The workshop will to be hosted from 21st to 24th May 2019 at University of Warwick, UK.
