The Wilson Review advocated the promotion of work placements as an effective way of improving employability.  Research shows that such integrated work experience also improves degree performance.  This session, run jointly with ASET, who have been advocating the importance of work experience for many years, aims to show case current research on work placements and to provoke discussion, inform practitioners and policy makers.
