WIL in Science: Leadership for WIL has successfully initiated a national movement to shift practice towards improved employability for science graduates. Conducted by the Australian Council of Deans of Science (ACDS) and funded by the Office of the Chief Scientist, the project has promoted sustainable work integrated learning (WIL) in science programs as a means to build graduate employability. This follows upon the 2015 ACER report Work Integrated Learning in STEM in Australian Universities, commissioned by the Office of the Chief Scientist, that showed higher education courses in the natural and physical sciences to have the least industry engagement among STEM disciplines.
