Placement (Internship): Students will be required to complete a minimum of 120 hours (maximum 160 hours) within a relevant, course-related organisation.


Delays in completing the placement could mean that the course will take longer to complete than the stated duration.  Attendance at the placement may be required outside the trimester dates.


This unit enables students to complete a placement of 120-160 hours (typically as a 4-6 week unpaid placement or as a 12 week unpaid placement) in an IT-related position.  Students will be required to undertake advanced level course-relevant work so as to gain experience as a specialised IT professional and to apply discipline-specific expert level professional skills and knowledge. 


Each student will be assigned an academic supervisor and an industry supervisor during the placement period, both of whom will contribute to the learning and assessment of the unit. Continuous performance management and the submission of a Placement Portfolio at the conclusion of the placement form the key elements of the assessment for the unit.  The portfolio comprises: professional communication documents (10%), problem-solving and discipline specific evidence of placement goals and outcomes (25%), reflections (45%), and a mid and end-of-placement assessment by the industry supervisor (20%).
