Abstract

Academics and employers can partner to deliver professional software engineering education via work-based learning (WBL) programmes. These programmes have the potential to engage and motivate under-represented groups, including those that would not normally engage in higher education. However, challenges still exist in supporting such individuals in participating in WBL programmes. Consequently, we discuss a project on broadening participation in WBL software engineering to support individuals from under-represented groups to participate in software engineering education.
