    Abstract

    For success in both educational and workplace settings, learners need to be able to accurately ‘self-assess’, and to recognise evidence of their abilities and achievements. Work-integrated learning (WIL) provides a vehicle to foster these skills and capabilities and prepare students for the workplace. This paper showcases the Skills and Capabilities Audit Tool, a new self-assessment resource designed for students to use prior to and upon completion of a WIL activity. Emphasis on the development of capabilities which support learner agency, namely to independently self-appraise, reflect and manage personal learning, will help students maximise their WIL experience.
