Student Leadership in Community Engagement - FOBE300

This unit examines leadership in the context of professional and community engagement. Students will learn through their experience of a work placement in a not-for-profit organisation, government agency, company, or other industry partner. Students will gain practical knowledge, experience and skills in an organisation. They will be challenged to analyse the context in which they are working and to examine the intersection between leadership in theory and practice. Students will contextualise their graduate capabilities, explore their leadership potential and develop their leadership style through professional and community engagement. This unit aims at preparing students for effective, responsible, ethical and active professional and community engagement and leadership.

This unit is a designated PACE unit and all enquiries regarding enrolment should be made with the Faculty no later than 4 weeks before commencement of the study period.
