    Students undertake this unit in order to develop applied skills in natural environments and outdoor leadership. Throughout the internship students maintain a professional reflective journal in which they document facets of their learning as it unfolds through observation, participation, trial and error and the requirements to work under pressure as part of a team. Students will consider their place in diverse teams, organisations and consider how broader stakeholder groups are impacted or assisted by natural environments and outdoor leadership practices.

    1. Initiate a genuine workplace project that involves self-management and reflection on process;
    2. Adapt the skills and knowledge acquired in their natural environments and outdoor leadership studies to a professional setting;
    3. Articulate the role and value of natural environment and outdoor leadership expertise in an organisation; and,
    4. Critically reflect on natural environment and outdoor leadership practices in relation to a genuine workplace project.
