In May WACE-ISO held a seminar at Edinburgh Napier University. The topic of the seminar was opportunities and challenges of Work-integrated Education.
"The WACE-ISO seminar held at Edinburgh Napier University was both thought-provoking and productive. The opportunity to reflect on our work in Scotland around Graduate Apprentice degrees, in the context of mature models of work-integrated learning across Europe, was of great benefit for participants. The participation of academics and senior policy officers made for some very engaging discussions which we will continue over the months to come.”

"The WACE ISO Seminar on Work-Integrated Learning: Enable Students Pathways to Employment was a great experience. The seminar with keynote presentations and subsequent group discussions was an ideal way to learn from each other and share experiences with colleagues from other universities and get to know how WIL is implemented in other countries. Learning from your peers is very inspiring, and especially the mix of theory from the reading list provided before the seminar and the best practices shared during the seminar was very beneficial. In addition, it was also a good networking event and I already look forward to the next seminar."
