Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast
Due to the circumstances around COVID-19, you will begin your semester 2 studies online in 2020. However, when Government guidelines change, on-campus studies will be reintroduced.
Freight transport plays a critical role in organisational supply chains, both domestically and globally, requiring careful analysis of the various options and strategies available. In this unit, you will examine a range of freight transport modes; Australian transport infrastructure and regulations; documentation and other considerations related to the import and export of goods; transport planning and operations; transport costing issues and strategic transport considerations.
In conjunction with the discipline theory, this unit builds on concepts of learning through practice in Year 1 of study by introducing you to more complex learning experiences.
You will be introduced to:
- discipline-based skills and knowledge in dynamic practice situations. This will include authentic and purposeful, industry-related experiences
- concepts of managing effective relationships and communicating with others
- the development and use of adaptive leadership skills and how these skills relate to innovative and entrepreneurial practice
- the nature of responsible, accountable and reflective workplace skills, and creative and critical thinking relevant to para-professional practice
You will exercise self-awareness, initiative and judgement to manage yourself and professional relationships effectively. The application of tacit knowledge and capabilities will be reflected in a Practice Manual.
