  • Overview

    Students will complete an internship in a business function alongside their
    studies. Students will draw upon their experience in the workplace in order to reflect on (and to
    challenge) their behaviours, attitudes and assumptions at work. This greater self-awareness will help the
    student to appreciate differences in cultural and ethical working practices. The module uses coaching
    tools to help students discover their own solutions to issues, thus developing ?independent? self-reliant
    learners and increasing their resilience.
    Assessment: Oral presentation (25%) ; Reflective Log (25%) ; Reflective Essay (50%).
