Hours & Credits
OverviewStudents 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%).
