BUS370 Workplace Learning 3 (8)

This subject focuses on the development of your professional identity, knowledge and work practice. It provides you with an opportunity to build upon the skills, knowledge and personal insights gained from Workplace Learning 1 (BUS110) and Workplace Learning 2 (BUS220). Through closer integration of theoretical constructs with your current or proposed work environment you will have the opportunity to extend your critical reflective practice, and further explore your own personal development, professional skills, and work ethic. As part of this subject you will generally gain practical experience through a work placement or project and apply your academic learning in a professional setting  either your current, a new employer or, in agreed circumstances, by undertaking a range of structured learning activities.
