Presentation Transcript

Placements within a topic
Placements within a topic

  • 1st level placements are those undertaken with a specific topic.

  • For example; we recently had a group of OH&S students who went on site visits to companies to conduct OH&S surveys and reviews. Students presented their findings to their Lecturer and were assessed.

  • Each year we have approx. 40 Financial Planning students who undertake a 3 week placement as part of Summer & Winter intensive topics. Students undertaking Financial planning tasks in Financial institutions throughout Australia.

  • Flinders Business School would like to incorporate this type of industry engagement activity into most of our HRM topics.


Work integrated learning wil program
Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Program

  • WIL is a complete topic where a student spends approx. 150 hours in workplace to gain valuable real world work experience and puts into practice what they have learnt at University.

  • Offers benefits to employers e.g. provides extra assistance to team, new talent and fresh ideas and a potential recruitment pathway.

  • The student completes a reflective report at the end of the placement that is assessed and the student gains credit towards degree.

  • This year we’ve had approximately 60 students undertake a placement.

  • This link provides further information about the WIL program http://www.flinders.edu.au/sabs/business/courses/wil/

  • Kristie Tanner recently completed a placement with Lyn’s HR Team at Courts.

Industry engagement research education consultancy and partnerships
Industry Engagement  - research, education, consultancy, and partnerships

There are a number of research and partnership options which I have listed below. Note for research projects, in some cases cash contribution is needed to access external grants or scholarships, but in others only an in-kind contribution, or ‘access to your organisation as a research site’ would be needed to gain external funding.

  • Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placements of 2nd or 3rd year undergraduate students

  • Honoursstudent projects. These may require only “in-kind” contribution from the organisation.

  • Research Higher Degree (MBus, PhD) projects. These may require only “in-kind” contribution from the organisation, or may require cash contributions linked to an external grant or scholarship.

  • Small contract research projects that have a ‘consultancy outcome’ for the organisation and a research publication outcome for Flinders. This can be linked to training or other consultancy activity $5,000 -$30,000. For example; a training program can be designed for your organisations specific needs, such as a volunteer mentoring training program. This may or may not involve research.

  • Small contract research involving Honours or Masters students, or other postgraduate researchers, under the supervision of FBS staff. The period of these projects is usually 1-2 years. Typically these would be in the range of $5,000-$30,000 cash contribution.

  • Larger contract research projects and research, with consultancy and research outcomes, that would involve PhD, Postdoctoral and FBS researchers.

  • Larger, joint research activities involving government grants and/or industry funds. These projects typically involve PhD students or a Post Doctoral researcher. An example of this form of funding is the Australian Research Council Linkage Scheme. A typical grant in a Business and Management area is approximately $90,000 - $250,000 over 3 years., subject to Industry matching 20% cash 30% in kind. There are, of course, other grant programs (that have different funding rules), that may be potential sources of ‘contract research’ funding.
