Learning objectives

  • Apply the learning from previous courses to practice in an applied setting.
  • Provide general consultation and education on HR management best practices.
  • Demonstrate ethics, work habits and communication skills.
  • Apply feedback from instructors and workplace hosts.

Practicum placement

As the placements are only 40 hours long, think about something “bite-sized” that a student could take on. If your business falls under the categories of:

  • accommodation,
  • food and beverage,
  • attractions,
  • aviation and/or,
  • travel or tourism related agencies,

Please consider hosting a practicum student to ensure there are qualified staff in our tourism industry for the future.
