The Strategy, Planning and Performance (SPP) team are currently undertaking a project to capture data about UWA’s Work Integrated Learning (WIL) activity for reporting to Universities Australia.
The purpose of the project is to develop a national baseline for Work Integrated Learning activities across the university sector.
Having a complete picture of activities occurring within our institutions will enable us to demonstrate the innovative, diverse and dynamic ways that universities are preparing their students for employment.
Establishing a baseline is also a commitment under the National Work Integrated Learning Strategy, a partnership between the higher education sector and industry.
Universities Australia will produce a high-level National Report in June 2018.
Mr Andy Lavender (Associate Director Information Governance and Reporting) and Mr Jason McParland (Market Information and Statistics Officer) will make contact with faculties and centres over the coming weeks to extract WIL activity data, and to identify potential best practice case studies.
The SPP team will be submitting the data set to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) for sign off before Friday 16 March.
We appreciate your involvement in creating a robust data set supported by exemplary case studies within this timeframe.
