About this Unit
This unit will provide second and third year science students with an opportunity to undertake a short work placement within a professional organisation. The placement will allow students to observe and develop professional skills and behaviour and integrate theoretical and practical science knowledge and conventions into a real world setting. Students will find their own placement but may be aided by the Unit Coordinator. In consultation with the Unit Coordinator and the workplace supervisor, students will develop a Professional Task to accomplish during their placement. The Professional Task will enhance their workplace skills and highlight how their science knowledge can be adapted and integrated into a professional career. The unit will assure that students have job readiness. Students may need to travel to other campuses or locations to complete this unit.

Special Requirements - Legislative Pre-requisites

All students will be required to conduct Risk Assessments for the tasks they have outlined in their Professional Task. Depending on the nature of the organisation in which they are doing their placement there may be special legislative requirements. These will be identified during development of the Professional Task. The placement will not proceed if the student does not have the correct requirements at the time the placement is due to begin.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
It is very likely that some equipment used by the student will be specific to the placement site. This equipment will be identified in the Risk Assessment, and appropriate training is expected to be given by the workplace.
