  • 1. Work Based Learning Maturity Toolkit:
    UWIC Pilot.
    Andrew Haldane
    Loretta Newman-Ford
  • 2. Why use the WBL Maturity Toolkit?
    • Test the Toolkit to establish whether it is fit-for purpose, robust and user-friendly before advertising it to the wider UWIC community
    • 3. explore how the toolkit could help to formulate an institutional WBL strategy.
    • 4. A way of assessing UWIC’s current state of play in terms of WBL and to inform future developments in this area.
  • Area of focus
    The toolkit was piloted at:
    • Institutional level
    • 5. School level
    • 6. Programme level
    Our own focus was also to consider:
    • how well the toolkit described WBL maturity (from the user perspective)
    • 7. ways in which the toolkit could be used/customised
    • 8. what actions could be taken to improve WBL at UWIC
  • Methodology
    Conduct face-to-face meetings with stakeholders using a semi-structured interview approach
    Approach key stakeholders
    Develop action plan to address areas of ‘immaturity’ and also for strategising WBL
    Send Toolkit URL
  • 9. Customisation of the Toolkit
    • Informal customisation of the Toolkit
    • 10. Re-phrasing statements as questions to prompt discussion and reflection around criteria
  • Outcomes
    Pilot findings:
    • WBL at UWIC is currently fragmented
    • 11. We need to formalise WBL activities
    • 12. A single WBL policy with high level objectives, but with enough scope for localised planning and implementation, is needed.
    • 13. Staff need to feel ownership
    • 14. The Toolkit was found to be unsuitable for use with large groups of stakeholders
    • 15. There was consensus that the toolkit was an accurate, comprehensive representation of WBL maturity
    Resulting actions:
    • Development of an institutional strategy
    • 16. Work with Schools to create localised plans and activities, structured around the strategy
    • 17. Generate procedures for WBL to inform staff about how to develop and deliver high-quality WBL
  • Lessons learnt and future plans
    • Explore ways of making the Toolkit more usable by groups of stakeholders
    • 18. Compare a well-established WBL programme with newly validated programme and facilitate support and collaboration between teams
    • 19. Use the Toolkit , a document which clearly and comprehensively illustrates WBL readiness, to inform the development of a UWIC strategy
    • 20. Establish the process for strategy development
    and take steps to achieve this
    • The Toolkit could be more user-friendly
    • 21. The Toolkit could facilitate the evaluation and
    action planning processes more effectively
    • The Toolkit would be more useful in an online form
  • Suggested updates for the Toolkit
    Based on the UWIC pilots, it is recommended that the following updates be made to the WBL Maturity Toolkit:
    Re-work the Toolkit into an online format
    Categorise statements into ‘core’ and ‘supplementary’.
    Present maturity indicators as questions rather than statements
    Use a 3-point traffic light system to illustrate the level of ‘maturity’
    Introduce spaces for users to record their responses, reflections, strengths or concerns in relation to criteria, or perhaps a SWOT analysis
    Create an action plan section where stakeholders can begin to develop ideas for development, etc.
    Reduce the amount of jargon used. This was found to be off-putting to users
