What is Work Related Learning?

Work-related learning activities can be integrated into all academic programmes, both vocational and non-vocational ones.

Work Related Learning (WRL) activities enhance students' understanding of the world of work; themselves and their potential work environments. As a result, students are further empowered to enter and succeed in graduate job markets; the world of work and their wider lives.

Examples include work-placements and work experience with an organisation, industry mentoring schemes, job shadowing in the workplace, case studies, role plays and simulations, professional skills modules, enterprise training, voluntary work opportunities, field trips and international exchanges.
