ACEN GOS Webinar: The impact of WIL on graduate outcomes – a three year review
8 June 2023
The impact of WIL on graduate outcomes – a three year review
This webinar continues the series focused on data gathered by ACEN in the Graduate Outcomes Survey (2020, 2021 and 2022). The session will explore the impact of different types of WIL (work-based, non-workplace and global) on graduate outcomes and how this may have changed over the three-year period. Data will be presented for graduates at different course levels and will examine WIL’s influence on diverse measures of employment, along with graduate perceptions of their own employability and how well their course prepared them for their current job. Along with a summary of key findings, the broader implications for WIL practitioners will be considered. Attendees may wish to review the GOS information and summary reports prior to the webinar.
GOS Webinars are facilitated through the GOS Working Party and are a series of webinars for ACEN Members focused on data gathered by ACEN in the Graduate Outcomes Survey (2020, 2021 and 2022).
