Abstract: The research paper recognises the effective implementation of e-learning in work-based training. It explores relevant research in the health care sector as well as the reprofessionalization of lecturers and teachers. The Pedagogical Variation Model for online learning and teaching based on a leadership paradigm is recommended. The development of “Work-Based-Learning” (WBL) online and the ways in which it may be adopted largely depends on the willingness of professional bodies to recognise and acknowledge the validity on how it is to be processed and delivered (Burns and Chisholm. 2003) because the methodologies of supervision are new and different to traditional ones. Much depends on the cultural environment in which online learning is to take place (Rogers, 2013). Both professional organisations and educational institutions need to continue their ongoing developmental programmes with an eye on collaborative efforts, by seeking strategic alliances to underpin successful implementation.
