This unit is designed to consolidate students' knowledge and skills in social enterprise while conducting a community-based project placement. The unit is structured around three assessed tasks which are designed to allow students to demonstrate their ability to apply and synthesise business concepts while engaged in practical business development. During the community placement, students may be involved in a variety of projects, which will afford the opportunity to apply business skills and theories from prior learning. This will provide firsthand experience that demonstrates how these skills and theories can support the solving of business problems in a practical business and community-engaged context, identifying opportunities, developing strategies and designing processes, procedures and management practices in order to enable a community project to fully realise its mission. Assessed tasks are designed to allow students to demonstrate their ability to apply and synthesise social business concepts while engaged in practical business development, and include scope setting and strategy development, a presentation and a reflective report.
Up to four weeks' full-time or equivakent placement plus 9 hours pre-placement workshops; 3-hour end of placement de-brief workshop.
