It is intended to support you if you're beginning, or even just thinking about, work based learning. It will also be a companion throughout your studies.
The book draws from the experiences of the UK's leading universities and captures the key issues that new work based learners should understand. It is illustrated with case studies and quotes from WBL students, and aims to answer all (or most of) the questions you will ever ask.
