Workplace Learning

“Workplace experiences where career development learning is effectively embedded provide benefits to the student, their educational institution, and the workplace. A critical success factor in the workplace experience being transformational for all parties is that the underpinning reflective practices are designed around career development learning. The metaphor of the two-way mirror embodies the unique capacity which career development learning brings to the experience. Therefore, career development learning becomes the process which brings clarity and understanding to workplace experiences.”

See: http://www.hecsu.ac.uk/graduate_market_trends_summer_2010_linking_career_development_learning_and%20_work_integrated_learning.htm for research on this topic.

This is a very valuable insight. Workplace mentors and/or supervisors who work with learners have a large role to play in the 70% workplace experience component of these learners. This role is insufficiently understood and often neglected.
