Work-related learning (WRL) describes a broad range of activities for students of all ages. These activities help students learn about the world of work by experiencing and preparing for it. WRL takes place in the context of the world of work, to help students develop knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to become employable; they are sometimes called employability skills.
Work-related learning is as important for students going on to further or higher education as it is for students going on to the world of work. Within a broad and balanced education, all young people need to develop employability skills. It is essential for participating in an adult life in which they contribute to the country’s economic well-being.
