WIL802 provides students with the opportunity to undertake an additional 300 hours of professional experience. The aim being to enhance both student employability and their capacity to build on their work in WIL801. As such (and so as to achieve the subject learning outcomes), WIL802 requires that its students consolidate the skills and knowledge they have acquired in practical, professional settings via the completion of a range of assessments which not only integrate theory and practice but facilitate self-reflection and critical analysis.
Specifically, students will critically reflect upon their own development and progress towards transitioning successfully into the workplace full-time; they will analyse a particular incident in their professional setting or a major change affecting the broader industry within which their specialisation sits, and recommend evidence-based solutions; synthesising their placement experience into demonstrable employability skills, students will explain what contributions what they have learnt might have in terms of their future studies and career path, goals and aspirations.
As with all WIL subjects at the College, WIL802 also allows students the opportunity to explore their professional interests; test their industry expectations; apply, practice and develop real world employability skills; and form professional networks for future career success.
a) Apply employability skills consistently in a variety of professional settings.
b) Critique an incident occurring in the professional setting.
c) Specify how businesses can adapt to change.
d) Document the significance of professional experience to lifelong learning.
Most assessment tasks are submitted using the Learning Management System, Moodle. For more instructions on submitting the assessment tasks, please refer to the instructions in Moodle for more specific information of the subject assessment submission requirements.
