What is WILP? (Work Integrated Learning Programme)

  • 01. Today’s world is witnessing an explosive advancement in technology and rapid changes in the working methods across the industry. It has largely impacted the job market and also created a huge complexity in handling the tasks. Thus, the jobs are becoming highly skill-intensive.
  • 02. In the present scenario, the industries expect new employees to possess practical skills whereas a large number of youth and job seekers have acquired knowledge in the conventional education system which is largely comprised only of the theoretical components.
  • 03. Therefore, University-Industry collaborations are the only way forward to handle the gap between academia and industry needs. Moreover, the new education policy announced by MOE strongly indicates to design such learning pedagogies which are in collaboration with industry and must be work-integrated so that the students are work-ready and fit to be employed after the completion of the learning programme.
  • 04. Shri Venkateshwara University has introduced Work-Integrated Learning Programme in part-time mode, which have been carefully designed with a focus on industry practices and integrated with work requirements so that the learners get the opportunities to connect theory with practice at their workplace.
  • 05. WILP are specifically focused on up-skilling needs of industry professionals, it provides opportunities to interact with local industries as well as with industry mentors that help students to prepare academically along with exposure to industry practices.
  • 06. The learning pedagogy of WILP is primarily designed on a concept of learning while doing where a student can easily identify its learning requirements which can be later shared with the academic resources available at university and can also be discussed with experts at collaborative industries.
  • 07. Internships and the on the job training are the essential components that help in acquiring skills and knowledge required to succeed in competitive job markets. Hence, WILP provides a vast pool of opportunities to learn new concepts with the latest IT tools that are being practiced in industries and also expose students with new emerging trends and global practices.
  • 08. WILP follows the blended approach of work-integrated learning and are conducted with the same rigour as campus based programmes, with a very high component of synchronous instruction, and use of the latest educational technologies.
