This unit fosters professional skills and awareness of professional issues in applied settings. Prior to their first placement, students are required to participate in placement preparation activities designed to enhance placement planning and student development. Following this, each student will be assigned a placement in an organisation, which will expose students to the workings of an organisation and the types of issues that arise in an organisational psychological context. The placement will be based on short and well-defined activities that students can complete for the organisation within a specified time period. 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.
