Who we are
We strive to advance research for global impact on the development of talent for a complex future.
The Work-Learn Institute conducts, facilitates, and shares the results of research into co-operative education and work-integrated learning using data from one of the world’s largest databases of student talent and a network of over 7,000 employers globally. Beyond thousands of student résumés, our database also stores all of our employer profiles, millions of job descriptions and records of employer-student interactions. The research reveals insights and is applied throughout Co-operative and Experiential Education's (CEE) programming to ensure we evolve to address the future world of work.
