Exploring Work-Integrated Learning in BC’s Interior & Northern Regions



The Interior & Northern Work Integrated Learning (INWIL) Coalition, a partnership between the University of British Columbia Okanagan (UBCO), Thompson Rivers University (TRU), and University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC), aims to direct connection between industry and institution, opening the door for employers to cost-effectively innovate, increase capacity, and contribute to a future skilled workforce. Helping employers engage with skilled student talent helps support the changing needs of small and medium sized organizations.

Through collaborations such as the Interior and Northern Work Integrated Learning Initiative, Interdisciplinary Co-op continues to enhance, broaden and explore relationships with community and industry partners to collaborate and develop a wide range of meaningful work experiences for students; and encourages students to explore the many regionally based opportunities available. These curated regional experiences offer students the opportunity to broaden a student’s network locally, further develop their capabilities and engage in experiences to support post-graduation career possibilities.
