This unit aims to increase students' knowledge of the natural environment(s) they are preparing to work in whilst consolidating leading and technical skills. Students are encouraged to focus on up to two environments for future professional specialisation. Students are encouraged to build professional experience in their chosen environments. A professional development plan is developed and agreed upon, this may take the form of peer leading, personal knowledge and skill development, or recognised professional knowledge and skill training.
Off campus practicums in this unit may require a levy for incidental fees for accommodation, transport and camping.
