The Knowledge Bank provides a repository of information resources, documents and academic articles on work-based learning.

It is directed at academic staff wishing to investigate, create and promote new work-based learning and work placement opportunities for their students.

It is also a tool for staff involved with the provision and administration of placements to share resources and ideas, as well as providing access to information across faculties.

The work-based learning toolkit provides a suite of summary information about work-based learning at Essex.

We introduce three models for WBL at the University of Essex, along with details of what you need to do to establish them on your courses.

There is information on Health & Safety issues and further guidance links and FAQ's to help you decide which type of WBL is best for your students, and most importantly, what you need to do to make it happen.
