This project will provide an evidence base for judging the impact of WIL on graduates' readiness to commence work. This will be achieved through:
Establishing a conceptualisation of WIL that can be operationalised for measurement and applied equally validly across disciplines and types of WIL; and a conceptualisation of work-readiness that, similarly, is applicable across disciplines.
The validation of appropriate measures of these two constructs.
Examining the impact of WIL on work-readiness in a wide variety of disciplines and cross a wide range of universities and types of WIL. The knowledge generated about the relationship between WIL and work-readiness will provide a multi-disciplinary evidence base for the impact of WIL on employment-readiness outcomes and guide university leaders in best practice and curricula investment.
