Building Graduate Employability Skills

Sally Parrot
March 2016

The process for developing and building relationships between education and industry for the purpose of WIL is becoming increasingly difficult. And with WIL placement becoming increasingly important for developing graduate attributes and employability there is a need to look for other opportunities. Conducting WIL online is one such opportunity, potentially increasing the scope for students to undertake placement (online) locally or globally.

This pattern captures the process developed for securing partnerships for online placements. These placements are designed to provide access to international WIL opportunities so students can effectively work anywhere in a ‘placement’ through online technologies.
