Work Integrated Learning Practicum (2212HSL)

This course has a prerequisite requirement which means you MUST successfully complete the listed course or requirement/s BEFORE enrolling in this course. If you have enrolled in the course without meeting this requirement you MUST WITHDRAW immediately or contact the Program Director if you believe you have extenuating circumstances. It is our experience that students who have not completed the prerequisite course struggle to complete the course and often Fail as a result. It is also your responsibility to have any Transfer Credit appearing on your academic transcript before enrolling. Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Practicum is designed to promote and support student learning, personal development and professional practice within Tourism, Events, Hotel, Sport Management, and Real Estate and Property Development. This course involves a series of workshops through which the student develops knowledge of professional practice and behaviours in the workplace. Classroom learning is linked to a 150 hour work integrated learning workplace position that facilitates the development of generic workplace skills and application of course specific knowledge. Workplace positions are usually unpaid work, with the student being mentored by skilled staff, and the position linked to agreed-upon learning objectives. While a minimum of 150 hours industry contact is required, the reflective assessment required during class dictates that at least 50% of the contact hours occur part-time during Weeks 1-13 PRIOR TO COMMENCING THIS COURSE, STUDENTS MUST IDENTIFY AND NEGOTIATE A SUITABLE POSITION WITH AN ORGANISATION IN THEIR DISCIPLINE AREA. THEY MUST ALSO REGISTER THIS POSITION WITH THE RELEVANT INDUSTRY LIAISON OFFICER (ILO) ON THEIR CAMPUS. Pre-requisite: Completion of 80CP Foundation Year courses. This course will be scheduled in Semester's 1 and 2 on both Gold Coast and Nathan campuses as DAY offerings. This course is not available for cross-registration.
