Cradle Coast, Hobart, Launceston
In this unit, you will draw from the knowledge, skills and attributes that you have developed over the duration of the course to respond to simulated practice scenarios and contexts. You will reflect upon your personal and professional strengths and use these to build both your workplace and industry resilience. You will take a continuous quality improvement (CQI) approach to determine your career readiness and to plan for your future in the workplace.
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.
