Student learning to use filming equipment

At this stage, you will need to write a Business Case. This should include information about those organisations within the industry sector that can provide meaningful WBL experiences, specifically, the capacity they have.

You will also need to think about whether the WBL activity itself needs to be assessed by ‘mentors’ within the workplace, providing the evidence of passing or failing or academic grade. If the answer is yes than subject teams will need processes and procedures in place to ensure mentors are effective and properly trained.

If you need any advice or information the Learning Designers are happy to help you out. Have a look at the CAIeRO information, or ChANGE project progress for more information.

You can also get in touch with the WBL Interest Group, who are academic colleagues that have already designed and managed WBL within their programmes.
