Using a University IT agency (the WOW agency) and an internal virtual business (WOWBiz) to provide students with compulsory work experience and work related learning: ASET Annual Conference 2015

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

This paper presents an initiative to use an internal IT agency to guarantee all students in a range of computing programmes with at least one compulsory work opportunity for their work related learning module. The aim is to improve our student’s employability on these programmes. Our findings in the past 3 years have indicated that this initiative has helped to steadily improve our Computing student’s employability awareness and their employment opportunities. Further plans are being made to expand this model to other programmes.
