The desire to upscale one’s knowledge and education is something that has taken a toll not just on the students but also on Working professionals, but the constraint of giving full-time attention to any degree or course is something not everybody can afford. Because of a lack of assistance or circumstances to support the family through earnings, many school graduates are unable to enter full-time university programmes.
Employees today are inclined towards upskilling themselves given the rapid speed of advancement in professional and personal growth. According to a recent study, rather than standard academic degrees, as a strategic approach to talent acquisition, employers now consider work-integrated learning programmes. Regular full-time courses demand students to contribute a set number of hours each week, which can be exhausting and stressful. Regular courses necessitate acquiring the required skills and knowledge to be future-ready, but today’s industries require more than academic or discipline-specific understanding.
Therefore, WILP programmes are considered preferable to regular courses since students can apply their academic knowledge to real-world circumstances, allowing them to become industry-ready. Participating in work-integrated learning programmes improves job opportunities and gives working professionals the chance to network with peers and industry contacts. These programmes also improve digital literacy abilities, which are usually not included in full-time courses.
New and improved options, such as work-integrated programmes, are gaining popularity nowadays. Work Integrated Learning programmes lead to graduate and post-graduate degrees, as well as allow working professionals to devote their weekends to enhance their skills.
