Content

Organisational Placement 3 involves students spending an agreed number of days in an assigned organisational setting. The placement units are designed to equip students with professional skills and develop their awareness of professional issues. Students will experience a wide range of organisational experiences and will become more familiar with various organisational psychology issues and potential interventions during placement. Students are expected to apply learnings from course subjects, build on their learning from previous placements and continue to enhance their professional and technical competence. Students will complete a well-defined project/activity for the organisation during the specified length of attendance. The broad features of the activities will be negotiated with the organisation prior or upon commencing the placement, with final details being agreed to by the student, placement coordinator and the organisation within the first two weeks of the placement.
The project/activity will be directly relevant to organisational psychology and will relate to a concern that the organisation wishes to address.

Assessment

In line with professional standards for the training of provisional psychologists, students must demonstrate a satisfactory level of competence regarding placement completion. An ungraded pass will be awarded to the student for successful completion of the following assessment task.

Assessment task 1 – Placement Completion:
- Successful completion of placement and required placement documentation.
- Participation in formal peer learning experiences.

Students must satisfactorily complete all components of the assessment task in order to obtain a pass for the unit. If there is uncertainty regarding the satisfactory completion of any of the components or if the student’s competence is questioned, the Unit Chair(s) will review and determine the outcome. Failure to complete the requirements of any one component satisfactorily will result in the student failing the unit assessment. Failure of a placement unit may lead to enrolment in the course being revoked.
