Description

This subject requires students to undertake pre-preparatory coursework followed by a series of professional practicum experiences that align with the Exercise Science Practicum Guidelines specified by Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA). These experiences enable students to consolidate learning and to develop practical skills relevant to future work as an entry-level exercise science practitioner. In each block, students focus on attaining competency in exercise assessment, prescription and delivery through a range of activities, in a range of sites, and across a range of relevant, apparently healthy populations. They also apply their sport and exercise science knowledge in activities across areas that reflect the ESSA Exercise Science Standards. In total students complete between 140 and 210 hours of unpaid practicum work. Throughout their time in this subject, formative and summative assessment tasks are undertaken which facilitate the growth and application of practical skills, specifically within the ESSA Accredited Exercise Scientist (AES) Scope of Practice. Students maintain a detailed logbook of all practicum activities, and complete a report which reflects on learning outcomes at the practicum conclusion. A comprehensive workplace evaluation of their performance from the workplace supervisor is also obtained.
