The vocational placement, which is worked in the Sydney metropolitan area, provides work experience at a host organisation for 14 full days (105 working hours). This practical experience is accompanied by a reading program. The reading component examines different approaches to the study of organisations, their structures, functions and policies, as well as links these issues to the placement experience.
