2 No general agreement on a definition; Work-based learning (WBL) represents a cluster of activities, including lifelong learning (Costley, 2001); Multiple perspectives of WBL; Some focus on the workplace & would include all types of learning generated or stimulated by the needs of the workplace, eg in-house job training, informal learning while you are working & related off the job education & training (Unwin & Fuller, 2003); Occurs as a normal part of someone doing their job and acquiring new skills & developing new approaches (Boud et al, numerous publications).

3 Work based learning: a new higher education? Boud & Solomon, Relationship between university-based education & WBL for work-based degrees Learners in the workplace study for a degree and learning opportunities arise from normal work; University – equips & qualifies people already in employment to develop lifelong learning skills; Not based on specific disciplines, bodies of knowledge or courses defined by the university but through a curriculum unique for each person Organisations benefit through practically applied knowledge & assessments that advance the organisation

4 It is not necessarily the experience of work itself that is paramount – rather.. the learning.. an individual derives from that experience of work and..reflecting upon it.... WBL can take many forms including a fulltime undergraduate undertaking a work part of the curriculum; a full time undergraduate doing a part-time job; a full-time employee seeking to issues in the context of the knowledge, skills & values of a higher education institution.. common factor linking these..the individual would be..undertaking a work role.
