Internships (Work Integrated Learning) – Developing the future of the workforce

Employers participating in work integrated learning programs find the benefits run both ways.

Work integrated learning (WIL) provides opportunities for higher education students to apply the theory and skills they learn at university in a workplace. For students, the experience is invaluable and plays an important role in their preparation for the work force. For employers, the experience goes beyond altruistic outcomes; the student can – and often does – add demonstrable value to workplaces in small, medium and large businesses.

WIL student lightens the load at Lovedale Long Lunch

The Lovedale Long Lunch has been a fixture on the calendar of food and wine lovers since its inception in 2002. It now attracts 20,000 guests to the New South Wales Hunter Valley wine region for a weekend of art, music, food and wine.

The festival grows in popularity each year, however success can sometimes strain resources and for the 2010 Lovedale Long Lunch, organisers sought assistance from The University of Newcastle’s Work Integrated Learning (WIL) program.
