This is the original full-length handbook which caters to the specific needs of work-based learners. Compiled by work-based learning experts from institutions across the world, this hands-on guide helps new learners to successfully navigate academia and get the most out of their university experience. It provides clear guidance on the processes involved in getting recognition for prior learning, setting up learning contracts and completing work-based projects. Real-life case studies, useful tips and reflective activities are embedded throughout to enrich students’ learning experience.

This is the essential companion for all undergraduates on work-based learning degrees across a range of disciplines, including Business and Management, Health and Social Care, Law, Sport and Exercise Science and Tourism.
