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, students will gain practical experience and apply their academic learning in a professional setting through a work placement either with a new host organisation or by undertaking a project or higher duties in their existing workplace.
