The third edition of the original full-length handbook which caters to the specific needs of work-based learners. Compiled by work-based learning experts, this hands-on guide helps new learners to successfully navigate academia and get the most out of their university experience.

Real-life case studies, useful tips and reflective activities are embedded throughout to enrich students' learning experience.
This is the essential companion for all students on work-based learning degrees and degree apprenticeships across a range of disciplines, including business and management, health and social care, law, sport and exercise science and tourism. It will also be an invaluable resource for work-based learning tutors, workplace supervisors and organisations with an interest in work-based learning.
