Work integrated learning (WIL) is attracting attention internationally as universities investigate ways to improve the work readiness of graduates. Successful WIL activities can contribute to a sustainable workforce for future economic growth and an increasing number of Australian universities are undertaking to provide such opportunities to all students. Yet there are perceived barriers for some students to fully engage. While much has been done to assist the growing diversity of student cohorts to participate, particularly during first year, perceived barriers to successful participation in WIL have been largely unexplored. Given the federal government's focus on widening participation and social inclusion and the rapid increase of WIL, a systematic and informed approach is needed to improve graduate outcomes for all students.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
