A major focus of the course is the development of interpersonal communication skills for practice in small group activities. Students practice and develop their interpersonal skills in a safe, supportive atmosphere leading to the definition and discussion of basic interpersonal communication techniques which help the interviewer understand more than the words. Some of the techniques students will be able to learn, develop and practice, include; active listening, empathic communication, respect and genuineness and person-centered techniques.

Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
