ACEN Webinar – Impact of different types of WIL on perceived employability and graduate employment
4 May 2022
This webinar continues the series focused on data gathered by ACEN in the Graduate Outcomes Survey (2020 and 2021). The session will explore the impact of different types of WIL (work-based, non-workplace and global) on a range of graduate outcomes. Data will be presented for graduates at different course levels and will examine WIL’s influence on different measures of employment, along with graduate perceptions of their own employability and how well their course prepared them for their current job. The presenter will summarise key findings and consider their implications for WIL practitioners and those responsible for enhancing graduate employability.
