Abstract

This paper explores the views that students and employers have on innovative work-based learning (WBL) programmes in English higher education. The experiences of both students and employers were analysed methodologically, using the organizational story-telling framework (Gabriel, 1999). The themes that have emerged are learning support, organizational issues, links between the WBL programme and the workplace and barriers to change. The paper concludes with recommendations for future policy and research.
