Courses & Units

Professional Knowledge and Skills EAL100


In this unit, you will draw on your workplace learning and experience in a recognised trade or professional discipline to develop greater understanding of its technical and procedural dimensions. You will reflect on your own acquisition of skills and knowledge, explain how you have applied them in workplace settings, and evaluate the ways in which they can be used to address a variety of predictable problems. As a reflective practitioner, you will be encouraged to recognise and value your own learning and work experience. By the end of this unit, you will gain new insight into how you have developed competence and confidence in your trade or professional discipline area.

*Note: based on Cert III (AQF3) equivalence leading to B.Ed (Applied Learning) CLOs (AQF7). Students who have completed a Cert IV qualification (TAE40116) assessed by an Australian accredited Registered Training Organisation or TAFE will gain credit for this unit.
