Description

This subject supports students to develop and manage their workplace process and integrate basic technical skills related to IT professional experience to enable them to make SFIA competency claims at a higher level.

Because each individual student's work experience is different and IT is very diverse, employer or host organisations are not expected to provide formal training (although some may choose to do so). Students are required to become active learners and seek opportunities to fulfill the objectives of this subject. As this is the second subject in this area that students complete, it is envisaged that less guidance is required although further extension in their work is encouraged.

Upon successful completion of this subject students should be able to:

1. Analyse their intern experience and propose improved practice which is suitable for future professional work.

3. Use and improve professional communication skills.
4. Provide a personal framework to improve their future analysis of current risks, constraints and creative practise in the IT Profession.

Contribution to the development of graduate attributes

The subject assists students to develop their own approach and framework for dealing with risks, constraints and opportunities in their Professional Practise. It is intended to develop graduate attributes for effective professional practice.
