Work Integrated Learning Programs
Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is increasingly being recognised by government, education providers, industry and students as an essential component in the successful transition of graduates to the workforce, and increasing their competitiveness in the labour market. Universities are also acknowledging that opportunities afforded by Work Integrated Learning are key aspects which can help differentiate and support the success of a tertiary education provider in a market where students demand knowledge and skillsets relevant to the business environment.
More and more universities and tertiary education providers are utilising the expertise of Performance Careers to offer tailored Work Integrated Learning (WIL) and Embedded Internship Programs to their students. Performance Careers has developed close partnerships with industry to ensure that graduates are equipped to meet the demands of today’s employment market, successfully positioning Performance Careers as a link between education and training partners, and industry.
The Performance Careers Work Integrated Learning Placement Program follows a rigorous and thorough quality assurance process. Through our tailored approach we will match your students’ career goals, specific area of expertise, relevant experience, learning objectives, training needs and specific location with a suitable WIL placement and host company.
Our WIL placement process covers all key steps from initial enquiry to consultation, interview and resume preparation, through to placement and beyond, with 6 and 12 week reviews with the students and the host company. Evaluations and survey data are monitored internally, and regular detailed partner reports will be provided.
With over 3,000 host companies, and currently placing between 250 to 300 students each month, we have an outstanding success rate of finding the right WIL placement for students.
Our Work Integrated Learning placement has been recognised as a vocational training course. During the placement students will work towards and be assessed for the national unit of competency: BSBIND201 Work effectively in a business environment. Unique to Performance Careers this is the first, and only, accredited WIL program of its kind in Australia!
Our Professional WIL Placement (Internship) Program can be delivered as a stand-alone program in conjunction with, or after, technical training.
