Work experience has traditionally been a part of industrial training, either informally through on‐the‐job learning or, more formally, as a component of occupational training programmes. However, work experience as a mode of training has not been systematically researched. Apart from Watts, there is little advice available on how work experience can be designed as an effective vehicle for learning.
