This unit provides students with the opportunity to undertake an approved group (2-6 members) project in order to gain experience of an appropriate professional/workplace environment, and awareness of the skills and attributes that are required to operate effectively in it and in a team. In consultation with the placement supervisor, students will develop a project proposal with clear activities, goals and outcomes. Once approved, students will then implement the planned project, documenting the key activities and milestones. Upon completion of the project, students will conduct an evaluation, assessing attainment of the goals and outcomes, reflecting on the experience of working in a team and identifying actions and opportunities for further professional development in order to enhance graduate employability.
Approval is subject to completion of an online application that includes a draft project proposal and the availability of suitable projects and supervisory arrangements. If APE201 has already been undertaken, the project cannot be in the same professional/workplace environment or on the same topic.
