The quality of work performed by graduates in the agricultural sector depends on their competence and the values they hold with respect to the community and environment in which they operate. This course is the first in a series of Work Integrated Learning courses throughout the program designed to develop the knowledge, skills, attributes, reflective disposition and identity that agricultural technology graduates need to succeed in the program and workforce.
Students will be provided with opportunities to explore the Agricultural Technology industry in Australia and commence the journey of building their own professional identity within the industry. Students will develop key skills in information literacy, ethical investigations, professionalism, communication and cultural and Indigenous awareness to provide a foundation for success in the program. Students will also commence the development of their e-portfolio which will be used to record and communicate competencies, knowledge and experiences gained throughout the program.
