12 case studies at the programme level and one at the institutional level and a final report have been developed. All are available from the Work-Based Learning as an Integrated Curriculum (WBLIC) website. Further impact will be achieved through the development of work relevant curricula and student learning at the workplace and in practice. The research will support programme developers and inform approaches to involving enterprises in curricular design and reform. A set of guiding principles, frameworks and models will be developed that can be transferred to a range of contexts. This can inform effective integration of WBL into the curriculum and thereby facilitate greater cooperation between higher education establishments and enterprises, making education more open and relevant to the needs of the labour market as well as the individual student or practitioner.
