This paper focuses on the issue of pedagogic development and assessment of work-based learning. It presents a case study of how a medium sized institution has developed a pedagogical approach for supporting and assessing WBL.

The WBL model examined is based on the inter-relationship and inter-dependency between understanding learning, critical reflection and the identification and development of capability within a WBL context. The paper considers each of the three areas in relation to its individual contribution and to the WBL process, as a means of developing a framework for academic, personal and capability development within a workplace setting.
