As the world of work changes, many employers struggle to find employees with the skills they need, even though the workforce may have other skills and qualifications. This is referred to as skills mismatch, when education and training are not providing the skills needed in the labour market.
How WBL helps employers
WBL means that employees can be trained in the skills needed by the business, while simultaneously developing practical experience. This helps to reinforce talent pipelines for individual businesses and industries, with knock-on effects to the economy.
How WBL helps employees
Employees benefit because they gain the skills that they need to progress in the labour market, even if they do not have traditional qualifications.
