Subject Aim:

Work integrated learning (WIL) is an important opportunity for students to apply the learning from their core and specialisation subjects and to hone essential workplace skills.

The aim of WIL802 is to further enhance both student employability and their capacity to build on their work in WIL801 by deepening and applying their skills in their specialisation area, test their industry expectations and to form professional networks for future career success. WIL802 requires that students consolidate the skills and knowledge they have acquired in practical, professional settings via the completion of a range of assessments which facilitate self-reflection and critical analysis.

Students will critically reflect upon their own development and progress towards transitioning successfully into the workplace full-time. Students will analyse a particular incident in their professional setting or a major change or innovation affecting the broader industry within which their specialisation sits and recommend evidence-based solutions discussed within the body of knowledge of their field of study.

Synthesising their placement experience into demonstrable employability skills, students will identify, career paths, goals and aspirations. Students are supported by academic supervisors in small groups and one-on-one meetings to guide them in their skills development and critical reflections.

Learning Outcomes:

a) Discuss employability skills in the specialised field of study in a variety of professional settings.
b) Critique an incident or a workplace challenge occurring in the professional setting by using relevant theoretical frameworks or models.
c) Critically evaluate the business’s need for innovation, change and transformation and provide relevant recommendations to the organisation.
d) Assess the significance of professional experience to lifelong learning within the chosen field of specialisation.
