Work-based learning (WBL) provides candidates with hands-on experience in a place of business. Work-based learning programs help bridge the gap between learning and doing. Many businesses have used this process as a "working interview"; the unique offering enables the business and leadership teams to observe the individual(s) first-hand in a real work environment and effectively evaluate their potential.
