Work Integrated Learning

University of Technology

Our Work Integrated Learning (WIL) programmes are designed to allow participants to complete the practical WIL component of their studies, paving a clear and dedicated path to obtaining their National Diploma qualification.

The WIL programmes consist of a Workshop Based Training and Experiential Training  programme, which provides workshop training, experiential training, and on the job experience. These programmes are adapted to the requirements of University of Technology (UoT) qualifications, as well as the participant’s area of specialisation.

Workshop Based Training participants are trained on specific workshop skills in a range of disciplines and assessed on their ability to implement such skills before qualifying to progress to Experiential Training. During Experiential Training, participants conduct the planning and implementation of engineering projects from start to finish, thereby integrating knowledge and skills developed during Workshop Based Training, and academic studies, into comprehensive and complete solutions.

Our Workshop Based Training and Experiential Training  programmes run as per the following, however, we do adapt and customise programmes to client requirements, without compromising the core outcomes as required by Universities of Technology.
