- The professional placement or practicum is an opportunity for students to develop professional competence in a work context. Students, on completion of the placement units, are able to demonstrate behaviour consistent with a beginning level of independent practice as an organisational psychologist.
- Students are able to (1) develop professional competence in a work context; (2) develop the ability to bring one's academic training to bear on practical problems in diverse situations; (3) develop a critical appreciation of the roles and functions of psychologists in organisations and the community; and (4) gain insight into the constraints which apply in work environments, and the relationships which exist between theory and practice.
- Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) supervision group meetings and (2) placement documents (log book, learning journal and placement reports). Further information is available in the unit outline.
To pass this unit, a student must: (a) achieve an overall mark of 50 per cent or higher for the unit; and (b) achieve the requisite requirements(s) or a mark of 50 per cent or greater, whichever is higher and specified in the unit outline, for the supervision group meetings component.
