WIL Awards

The National WIL Awards recognise the contribution that organisations make to work-integrated learning. ACEN recognises that WIL needs institutions and partner organisations to collaborate to provide an authentic learning experience for students engaged in WIL. We also know that many of our partner organisations go beyond our expectations and integrate WIL into their operation and work hard to improve the WIL experience for students.
