Work Integrated Learning in English Higher Education

   CHAPTER  B1  

Work Integrated Learning in the English Higher Education System 

Norman Jackson


This Chapter provides a descriptive summary of the approaches used in English Higher Education to the design of curricula that enable people to develop the attitudes and capabilities to be professional.  There are many ways of achieving such an educational objective. Work Integrated Learning is an unfamiliar term to curriculum designers in England. My proposition is that a concept that only considers designs that integrate discipline specific knowledge and skills with relevant professional work, is limiting in its ability to represent the designs that have the potential to develop attitudes and capabilities that are relevant to being a professional. We need an inclusive concept of Work Integrated Learning if we are to embrace the diversity of higher education designs that seek to combine and integrate learning through study and work.
