Abstract:
The term work-based learning is widely used throughout the literature, academia and industry to describe a multiplicity of approaches by which one can learn through work. This thesis focuses on the rationale for conducting work-based learning and blended learning. Qualitative data was gathered from questionnaires with students and interviews with students, industry champions, course developers and employers. The results show that effective work-based learning is not the simple implementation of one single model or single tool, but rather a negotiated approach to the students’ learning which takes account of the business case for the employer. Another key to successful work-based learning is the opportunity for the student to implement their learning and theory in a workplace environment. A novel matrix was developed, which was designed to build upon the research findings and the literature. The matrix was developed to aid course design and to assist with the bespoke development of employer-facing work-based learning and in identifying authentic assessment opportunities.
