Students are required to undertake an internship placement of 14 - 24 weeks (inclusive of 180 hours of workshops/assessments) under the supervision of a professional practitioner in an appropriate workplace in the community. Students will be exposed to and involved in the processes of planning and implementing daily activities within the workplace. Each student is required to analyse and reflect on the organisation and management practices of their workplace by preparing a mini research thesis, maintaining a progressive reflective journal, synthesising, critically analysing and applying new knowledge from their workplace experience to their field of study, and be able to communicate these experiences and reflections in written and verbal form.
There will be at least three compulsory (assessable) workshop sessions held on campus where students, as part of the larger internship cohort, will undertake activities relating to: 1) Preparing for an internship; generic and personal skills required; awareness; professional practices; relevant theories and services of the Careers UC; 2) Mid-placement workshop and 3) Post-placement workshop. Students would benefit from having completed Foundations of Professional Planning Unit or equivalent units in other faculties addressing professional planning and workplace generic skills.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Evaluate and report on the relationships between discipline specific theories and real-world professional practice through self-directed learning;
2. Synthesis, analyse and apply discipline specific related practices and identify how these relations could be improved;
3. Communicate individual and group experiences both orally and in written form with confidence and clarity; and
4. Demonstrate the application of employability skills including technology team work; proble solving; initiative and enterprise; planning and organising; self-management; and learning skills.
14 - 24 weeks; Pre-workshop 7 hours; mid and post workshops 4 hours
Students must complete 48 credit points toward any UC degree AND have a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 5.5, or above, AND/OR participate in an interview process.
