Measures of Success for WIL

Measuring the success and impact of WIL is challenging work. The Department of Education, Skills and Employability are piloting WIL measures via the National Priorities and Industry Linkage Fund (NPILF), and institutions increasingly require measures and data on the impact of WIL beyond Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS) data. It is time to have a conversation to share what we are measuring and discuss our future focus. The Vic/Tas ACEN committee will host ACEN’s first Chapter Led Conversation for 2023 and provide an engaging space to share and learn about measuring WIL indicators of success for our key stakeholders.

Facilitated by the ACEN Chapters, Chapter Led Conversations provide a platform for discussion around current issues facing WIL practitioners. Open nationally to all ACEN Members, these virtual sessions involve facilitated online conversations in discipline groups. We invite you to speak up, share your thoughts on what matters to you most and offer strategies to encourage one another in our WIL community.
