Integrating Entrepreneurship and Work Experience into Higher Education
In this Knowledge Alliance, Integrating Entrepreneurship and Work Experience into Higher Education, enterprises, associations and HEIs come together to identify and analyse current provision of work experience in HEIs in 7 different EU countries, generating 84 case studies of work-based learning (WBL) involving all four types of disciplinary sectors (hard-pure, e.g. natural sciences; soft-pure, e.g. humanities and social sciences; hard-applied, e.g. medicine and soft-applied, e.g. social work) covering work placements, traineeships and entrepreneurships. Working with practitioners, it will create 12 replicable modules of WBL, together with guidance on management, quality assurance, learning outcomes, funding and accreditation. These modules will cover and support the 4 sectors and will be tailored to national contexts. A unique feature is the attention for Humanities for which the transition to the labour market is less transparent and mapped than other sectors.
