What you need to know

By being explicit about how and where professional competencies are developed through the curriculum, we can help our students to understand their own employability.

We have identified four key competencies that all of our students should acquire in their time with us:

  • Professional communication
  • Coordinating with others
  • Reflection
  • Digital capabilities

To access case studies which demonstrate how these competencies can be integrated into teaching and learning, please consult the Professional Competencies handbook on our workspace page.
