Global Partner Memberships

Global partners, the elite world leaders in work-integrated learning, are offered an exclusive platform to demonstrate their global leadership.  This includes hosting one WACE conversation per year, a prominent profile on the WACE website, and complimentary digital promotion at conferences and events.  Global partners also hold a seat on the WACE Global Strategy Council, the hub where the international community collaborates to advance WIL worldwide. As a mark of their elite status, global partners receive full discounts on WACE events and the Global WIL challenge.

As a full institutional member, your higher education institution will be part of a global network that supports the advancement of work-integrated learning. You'll have a seat at the Global Strategy Council, where you can contribute to the advancement of WIL internationally. You'll enjoy full discounts on WACE events and the Global WIL Challenge, providing significant value for your institution.

Limited Institutional Memberships

Limited institutional memberships, tailored for organizations with up to two individuals seeking to benefit from WACE membership, offer a flexible and cost-effective way to engage with the WIL community. These members have the freedom to manage their engagement while enjoying the benefits of WACE PD and events with a partial discount, empowering them to make the most of their membership.

Individual Memberships

Individual memberships are designed for persons who are passionate about work-integrated learning and do not have access to an institutional or partner membership.  Individual members enjoy full access to the WACE community including a partial discount on all WACE events.
