In this chapter we explore workplace learning (WPL) in professional entry education as a space for the harmonisation of two sources of practice knowledge. The first is developed through scholarship and research and the second is developed through practice performance in authentic workplace contexts. It is relevant to note that after graduation, practitioners continue to learn through practice in workplace settings and continue to generate practice-based knowledge. So many of the observations presented in this chapter relate similarly to graduate practitioners.
