BWIL6573: Job Smart Edge

The Job Smart Edge unit is designed to provide students with the employability skills and tools to work effectively in an organisation. The unit features a client project bootcamp jointly delivered by careers and employability practitioners and educators. The focus is on preparing students to successfully undertake industry-focused problem-solving work in diverse teams. The learning journey includes an intensive 2-week virtual Digital Industry Project with a real client, with pre- and post-project employability workshops to provide students with the skills, models and tools to allow them to navigate and secure further employability opportunities. Workshops cover learning how to plan a project, launch a project, ensure project engagement, wrap up a project and communicate about a project. The assessments are designed to assist students with setting personal, team and project goals, with working on a project challenge and preparing a report for a client, and with developing and reflecting on individual employability capabilities developed through the program (including innovative problem solving and interpersonal leadership skills). By the end of the unit it is expected that students will be more equipped and prepared to face the world of employment.
