This online module will provide the opportunity to develop and maintain an e-portfolio, which can be built following the completion of the Professional Year program. Issues related to Business, Legal and Ethical content in the workplace are also covered. The online module is for 13 weeks and runs parallel to the student internship.
- Professional ICT Internship
One of the most significant aspects of the Professional Year program is an internship placement will be for a minimum period of 220 hours which is normally 10 to 12 weeks and can be part-time or full-time. This provides practical ICT workplace experience in an Australian based organisation.
