Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

understand, analyse, manage, and reflect on ethical issues by applying the APS Code of Ethics, decision-making models, and legal frameworks

demonstrate professional oral communication skills, including counselling and interview skills
