The Next 5 Year 2019 - 2020
Work integrated Learning at Lakehead continues with our core goal of ensuring that students are "work-place ready" upon graduation. WIL at Lakehead, powered by RBC Future Launch, now offers a suite of experiential opportunities designed to meet the needs of students, faculty, business and the community
Through WIL, students are given the opportunity to build their workplace readiness by working within and doing projects for businesses, public and non-profit organizations.
The Wil suite of opportunities includes in-class experiential learning based on real-world cases, customized projects with partner organizations, increased mentorship opportunities, job-shadowing, a Foundational Skills Co-Curricular Workshop Series, and models site placements, ranging from week-gong to full summer placements.
Projects and placements can be completely customized based on the needs of the organization and the student.
WIL at Lakehead gives business students, from 1st year through to postgraduate level, the skills and practical experience to ensure
successful transition into their careers upon graduation
Students participate in the program starting in 1st and 2nd year where they focus on Foundational Skills Development, Job-Shadowing, Mentorship and Reflective Practice to ensure that as 3rd' and 4th year students they are as "Workplace ready" as possible for in-class and community-based experiential and work-integrated learning opportunities.
