Agribusiness Professional Practice is a work placement subject for credit, designed for students who have completed first year of the Associate Degree Agribusiness. Students will research, contact and find a work placement within an Agribusiness-related enterprise, community group, or government agency. The work placement will be full or part-time for a minimum of 75 hours (10 days FTE) but may be longer by agreement between the host organisation, the student and the Unit Coordinator. In addition to the hands-on development of industry-specific skills, knowledge and networks, students are required to participate in a series of career development workshops. The workshops are primarily designed to increase students' ability to apply for and be selected for advertised positions by improving job searching skills, resumes, cover letters, statements addressing selection criteria using STAR/SAO techniques, interview preparation, assessment of personal goals, self-reflection, and professional communication. A post-placement report and presentation enables students to assess supervisors’ feedback, reflect on their overall Work Integrated Learning (WIL) experience, share their experiences and identify how they have enhanced their employment and employability skills.
