This unit is designed to consolidate students' knowledge and skills in social business while conducting a community-based project placement. 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 first-hand experience that demonstrates how these skills and theories can support solving 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.
