This module is designed to enhance students’ appreciation and application of Career Planning and Development (CPD) activities. The module guides students to direct and elevate their personal CPD through active, formative and reflective learning organised around four themes. These themes stem from competencies central to career development namely ‘I am Ambitious’, ‘I am a Citizen’, ‘I am Resilient’ and ‘I am Agile’. Students identify and undertake a range of CPD activities under each theme that target their personal CPD priorities. Specifically, the CPDs that students propose should be consistent with their own career development needs, and with the learning outcomes of the module and should realistically advance student competencies beyond their current level. These activities are pursued outside of lecture hours and will be approved by the module lecturer who provides feedback on initial reflective learning logs. The module also covers HRM topics relating to career development including the ‘Future of Work’, organisational career structures, total reward and negotiations. Upon completion of the module students submit a reflective learning CPD portfolio which documents their competence progression and their learnings regarding their future career aspirations and plan.
