Getting Started with University-Level Work Based Learning is a companion guide, written by experts, to help those new to work based learning. The book is aimed at workers and professionals considering, or just starting, a work based learning (WBL) programme. It will also be of interest to employers considering a partnership with a university to run a WBL programme for their employees. The book is not academic – it is an easily accessible learners’ guide to university-level WBL programmes. It is not a study skills manual, although there is some advice about studying. It is not a critique of the theoretical basis of work based learning, although it does say something about the principles behind such learning. It is intended to support learners who are beginning, or even just thinking about, work based learning. It will also be a companion throughout their studies. The book draws from the experiences of the UK’s leading universities in the field and captures the key issues that new work based learners should understand. It is illustrated with case studies and quotes from WBL students, and aims to answer all (or most of) the questions they will ever ask. As university-level work based learning continues to expand rapidly in the UK, this book provides a much-needed guide to ‘getting started with WBL’.
