The purpose of work based learning is to support effective learning and development and the application of knowledge and skills within a practice setting. The focus of the module is on the direct application of learning to real work issues and problems. Work based learning involves reflection on practice; learning from the experience.

Before starting a Work Based Learning (WBL) module you must attend a planning workshop in the semester before you wish to start the module.
