ENG380 Performance Planning and Review - Intermediate Cadet (6)

In this subject students engage in reflective management of their learning and professional performance while on placement in industry. They plan their workload, negotiating a learning contract between themselves and their industry placement employer. Students then use evidence-based reflection processes to determine if they have met their goals, adjusting their professional practice where necessary. This subject also includes a summative evaluation including feedback from industry placement supervisors. The expectation for this subject is that the student should be performing at the level of an intermediate cadet engineer.
