Flinders University is committed to preparing our students for lifelong careers through Work-Integrated Learning (WIL). By hosting a placement student, taking on a workplace project, or working with us in delivering an on-campus, simulated workplace activity, you can help students develop a clear link between theory and practice. Working in partnership with our students and Flinders University also offers significant benefits to you:
- The ability to set up or test a new project
- Having a dedicated resource to complete specific tasks or projects
- The opportunity to give a potential recruit a trial without obligation
- Developing links with higher education institutions and feeding into teaching practices and methodologies
- An injection of new and fresh ideas into your organisation
- Contributing to the development of tomorrow’s workforce
- Staff development opportunities that arise from employees mentoring students
Flinders University is committed to ensuring that the organisation, supervision and assessment of these activities is structured and coordinated against stringent guidelines.
The Innovative Research Universities (IRU) have developed a range of practical tools to help business and industry engage with universities, to work together to develop Australia's future skilled workforce.
