General Information

Unit Synopsis

Graduates in human resource management are expected to fill a wide range of roles in organisations. Regardless of the position, some fundamental skills are required of graduates from the very start of their career. These include interviewing skills, training and facilitation skills, and basic conflict resolution and negotiation skills. This unit is designed to provide students in the latter part of their degree with the opportunity to build upon theory from earlier units, and to acquire skills that will be applicable in the workplace.

International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
