About this Unit
This unit provides students with the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge they are developing during their studies to tasks within a workplace (the host organisation). The unit may involve substantial contact with the public through workplace placements and, for this reason, it is equivalent to a professional placement. The unit is recommended for students in their third year of study (or part time equivalent).
