The Seminars focus on developing workplace communication and customer service skills helping students prepare for success in the Australian workplace.
Additionally, seminars will cover tips and tricks for the recruitment process, covering achievement statements, mock interviews and LinkedIn.
The third day will finish with a Networking Function with an alumni panel and UNSW staff who will host the 50 hour Workplace Experience.
50 hour workplace experience
After completing the three-day Seminar, all participants will be interviewed for the 50 hour Workplace Experience. Upon these interviews, successful participants will be matched with a UNSW supervisor.
This experience provides an opportunity for international students to practise skills gained through the Seminars and work collaboratively with their supervisor in developing and working towards Workplace Experience goals, receiving constructive feedback throughout.
The hours will be set according to each student’s academic timetable and the availabilities of UNSW supervisors. Students are expected to complete the 50 hours before the T2 exam period.
This is an unpaid workplace experience for students to focus on developing their confidence in the Australian workplace. It is part of an AHEGS accredited university program, so it will appear as a co-curricular activity on the students’ secondary transcript when they graduate.
Self-reflection Questionnaires and Evaluation Feedback
Students are required to complete self-reflection questionnaires at various stages of the program. This helps them to consolidate their skill learning as well as monitoring their development during the program.
Students who undertake Workplace Experience, will be required to complete two Workplace Experience Evaluation with their supervisor.
These questionnaires and feedback are required to successfully complete the Program.
