About this Unit
This work integrated learning unit will provide students enrolled in the Master of Project Management with an opportunity to undertake work placement focusing on project management (PM) in a professional organisation within an industry relevant to students’ specialisation or generic option. The placement will allow students to observe and develop PM professional skills and behaviour, integrate theoretical and practical PM knowledge and conventions into a real world setting, and establish project management competency, all in line with recognised world standard in project management. This unit aims to promote greater engagement with career planning and progression and hence improve job readiness.

Special Requirements - Legislative Pre-requisites

All students will be required to conduct Work Health and Safety Risk Assessment for the tasks they may carry out in their workplace. Depending on the nature of the organisation in which they are doing their placement there may be special legislative requirements. These must be identified by the students before commencement of placement. 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.
