Work Integrated Learning Program - WORK300 and WORK500 Units

WORK300/WORK500 Professional Skills Development units enable enrolled students to apply their academic knowledge in a workplace context, to reflect and report on the experience, and consequently, to increase their level of career readiness.

More information about the Work Integrated Learning program, how to enrol in WORK300 or WORK500 and how to organise a placement is available from Career Development in the Student Support Team.


The form of assessment tasks will be determined in consultation with your academic supervisors.

Assessment tasks assigned to students enrolled in WORK300/WORK500 are, to some extent, negotiable. That is, these tasks can be modelled to suit the experience the student can expect to gain through a particular work placement. Usually, your supervisor will initially suggest the number and form of assessment tasks. The final details, including date of submission and weighting, can then be negotiated. There are, however, limits regarding the choices available. This is a 6 credit point unit, so there are minimum requirements in academic terms concerning word length and marking criteria.
