INDUSTRY PROJECT

This is a requirement in some certificates, diplomas and other qualifications. The Industry Project is designed to foster networking, practical skills and industry awareness.  There are various ways that the requirement can be satisfied and it can be completed from wherever you live in the world.

There are options available to you to satisfy this requirement. Please read the below carefully and contact the school with any questions you may have. 


Common Unstructured Options include Work Experience and Industry Meetings
Option 1 - Work Experience

The most common way to satisfy an industry project requirement is by undertaking work experience, paid or unpaid, in a relevant context - then submitting proof in the form of a reference from the employer or a workplace colleague, which clearly specifies hours of experience. Work experience is seen as highly desirable. 

Participants with relevant, current or past work experience will be given exemption from this project if they can provide suitable references from employers that show they have already fulfilled the requirements of this project.

Other Options - Industry Meetings

Other options might include participation in a formal mentoring program, conferences, contribution in professional or amateur clubs or associations, working at or attending industry shows, seminars or conferences, or networking with colleagues in some other way.

Again, references (if credible) can be all that is needed to be supplied. If references are not applicable, perhaps any email threads showing involvement, or seminar information etc, can be a convenient way to evidence what you have done.

Common Structured Options include Workshops and Research Projects

 Some students may find difficulty satisfying industry project requirements through common, unstructured approaches.  Differently abled, isolated, or incarcerated students might face such challenges. In such circumstances, the school may offer formal structured modules such as Workshop I, II, III or Research Project I, II, III, IV as options (depending on the course).

 If this situation applies to you, you will need to discuss the structured options (and module selection) with the student services team. In the meantime you can review information on each of the modules by clicking on the links below.

Procedure for completing an Industry Project

This project is a major part of your course involving the number of hours relevant to the course - this could be either 100-200 hours. 

This project is based on applications in the workplace and specifically aims to provide students with the opportunity to apply and integrate skills and knowledge developed through various areas of formal study.

For courses that require 200 hours, this time may be split into two projects each of 100 hours. This offer broader scope to fulfil the needs of the course and to meet the number of hours required.
