WBL Guidelines

The Project has captured over 100 WBL documents from our partners and these are contained in this section.  You can search the resources by language or by topic.  We recognise that a range of people associated with the WBL process may want to search this library of resources and thus we have created a range of pathways to navigate it.

You can search by your role – teacher, employer, VET provider or may wish to search the library by topic, such as assessment, placement activities and post placement.  Note that the resources are in a mix of languages – English, German and Slovenian.
