Work Integrated Learning (WIL)

WIL plays a crucial role in preparing students for the professional world by merging academic learning with practical, industry-based experience. At CUT, students are not only required to complete WIL modules but must also do so in a field relevant to their qualification and within specific timeframes. This structured workplace learning is crucial and is assessed at the appropriate National Qualifications Framework (NQF) level. Moving forward, all CUT programs lasting three years or more must include a WIL component of at least 30 credits.

The Career Fair saw the participation of twelve SETAs and attracted 400 students. It served as a platform for SETAs to offer guidance and information on various career paths, as well as provide details on available internships, learnerships, and bursaries.
