2017 / 2018 Pilot Year a Success!
The first year of the RBC Work Integrated Learning Program at Lakehead proved to be extremely successful in meeting the primary goal of empowering Lakehead students for the jobs of tomorrow.
The placements offered by our community partners were outstanding and the mentor-ship and support offered to students and the program exceeded expectations.
The Impact Measures Report for the RBC Work Integrated Learning Program demonstrates the tremendous impact of the generous support of RBC Future Launch, Lakehead University and our community partners. The success that was built during the first year of the program has led to strengthened partnerships with both community and business organizations and has led to real employment for students.
The Addendum: RBC WIL Program at Lakehead Evaluation Results details the year end evaluation instruments, completed by site supervisors and students, and also includes examples of reflective examination of the program submitted by students.
We look forward to building on these successes to make the RBC Work Integrated Learning Program at Lakehead a best practice model of experiential learning that leads to real world results.
