Intro to CRLP200: Career Ready Learning & PracticeHear from the subject co-ordinator
Hi, I’m my Marianne. I’m the subject coordinator for a subject called Career Ready Learning and Practice, CRLP200 for short. It’s about getting you career ready and what we do is put you in the workplace. So why is it important to do a subject like this? Well, you’re going out there after you finish uni and the job landscape is super competitive. And not only do employers want graduates who have the academic knowledge they need but also, to be able to be a professional and effective person in the workplace. Um, CRLP prepares you for this by giving you, um, practical skills, theory and the most important part, experience to launch you into the next phase of your life.
So what does it involve? One major component is the work placement and this is great because what you get to do is you get to choose your own adventure. You get to identify the kinds of skills you want to learn in a work placement, where you want to go, when you want to do it, how you want to do it, and we approve these internships and give you insurance to make sure that you’re ok in this environment. Um, we’ll also support this experience with, um, theory and the skills to strengthen your resume, how to effectively perform in an interview, the ability to understand what you have to offer, explain it to employers in a way that hopefully will get you hired. So what I would do, I would choose CRLP to give yourself the practical skills and the experience that you need to take your academic learning and launch yourself into the workplace as a professional and effective employee or maybe even running your own business.
