Also, the expectations of the newer generations of graduates are different from a decade ago. While not a silver bullet, work-integrated learning (WIL) and co-op have proven to be a competitive advantage that higher education and industry cannot ignore in alleviating some of these challenges. Deployed well, quality partnerships between HEIs and the industry provide an excellent pathway for organizations to gain access to young talent and build their talent pipeline. In creating appropriate WIL & co-op opportunities, degree programs can generate greater synergy between what employers want and the capabilities of graduates.
