Discover your potential: Leadership, Service and Employability XBR110


Ever thought of yourself as one in a million?
Universities Australia notes that in 2017 Australia has more than one million students enrolled in Universities across the country. That is more than one million potential graduates entering the workforce over the next 1-5 year period. When you graduate, how are you going to stand out from the crowd?
XBR110 Discover your potential: Leadership, service, and employability, is a unit about you. XBR110 will help you identify and live your values; identify and apply your skills and strengths; and build goals and plans for your future that uniquely highlight the person you are and the person you want to be. You will have the opportunity to develop skills that are key to enhancing your chances of employment in ways that draw on your unique interests and building from your identified philosophy of self-leadership. You will learn how to practice and highlight how your unique skills can contribute to solving a wide range of challenges and how you can embrace the breadth of opportunities the world has to offer. In an increasingly competitive global job market, it is imperative that you know who you are, where you want to go, and what you can bring to the different communities or work environments you will encounter.
In XBR110 you will hear from inspiring leaders, you will work to solve real world problems with attention to creativity and diversity, and you will have the opportunity to show how you can draw on your motivations and aspirations to have real impact in the world. XBR110 presents you with a broad framework of leadership through which you are supported to reflect on how your own values, skills and strengths can contribute to positive leadership outcomes for yourself and others. Centred on a volunteer experience of your choice, XBR110 will help you identify how your time as a student can result in more than a degree. XBR110 gets you ready for your journey as a life-long learner by helping you to discover your passion and contribute to the world in ways that are most relevant you.
On completion of this unit you will be given credit for Tier 1 of the Vice-Chancellor’s Leadership Program, highlighting the University of Tasmania’s recognition of the first steps you have taken to discover your potential.
