Organisational Placement 2 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 to 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.
