Am I supervised during Work Integrated Learning?

Yes, as a Work Integrated Learning student you’ll be supervised by a qualified, experienced and professional practitioner appointed by SACAP, as well as an onsite supervisor at your placement. Supervision provides students with insight, guidance and support to cope effectively with the realities and challenges of Work Integrated Learning. Supervision takes place both individually and in group sessions.

What is Work Integrated Learning? What does it include?

Work Integrated Learning is a comprehensive and practical placement within an organisational setting. It’s a distinctive feature of a SACAP qualification and most SACAP qualifications include a Work Inegrated Learning component. It is an invaluable opportunity to integrate all the knowledge and skills you’ve acquired in the classroom and apply them in a real-world setting under supervision. This means that you can graduate confident and work-ready. Read More.
