Industry Skills in Practice ZPP102


This unit provides you with opportunities to develop industry-based knowledge and skills that are highly sought out by employers. In addition, it allows you to explore key processes and practices that are used across a broad range of industries. You will be introduced to key concepts, terms, principles, techniques, and approaches that are related to a range of industry-relevant topics. For example, some of our modules include Personal Cyber Security, The Internet of Things (IoT), Preparing for Industry 4.0, Self-Care for Health and Wellbeing. Quality Management, Introduction to CAD, HTML and CSS Basics, Introduction to Drones, Python Programming for Beginners, Understanding Supply Chain, Project Management and Design Thinking. Through a range of activities, you will apply what you learn in practice, analyse actions and experiences, and engage in critical reflection. You will demonstrate your learning largely through your portfolio of evidence and a guided reflection. To complete this unit, you will choose twelve (12) modules from a broad selection, based on areas of interest to you, and undertake the required assessment tasks.
