Content

The unit aims to provide students with an opportunity to undertake, as part of their degree, a learning experience based on the regular employment position that the student is in.  Work Based Learning (WBL) allows a student to identify and apply coursework theories and practices to address a real problem within their organisation.

Students will identify a business problem in their current place of employment and during the course of the unit will work to resolve it.  The outcome should offer value to their organisation.  Additionally students will be required to undertake reflective learning through a continuous assessment process.
