Introduction

1. Industrial Experience Rationale

To enable students to gain industrial or professional learning experiences to develop


transferable skills for employability so as to enhance their future value to employers.
Familiarity with all common processes is essential and exposure at a practical level to a
wide variety of processes is required at a level appropriate for young professionals.
Whilst it is clearly desirable for students to get a feel for the skills involved, the central
aim is to achieve appreciation of business processes. Industrial training is a key
component of learning in an integrated academic curriculum.

2. Part 1- Pre-industrial Experience Assessment and Grading

Before students go for Part 2 of their Industrial Experience, they will be assessed on
their effort and learning experience of Part 1 which starts in Week 7 until they secure a
placement before Week 16. Part 1 is equivalent to 5 credits.

Students are required to send in a report that consists of the following and the
breakdown of assessment weightage:-
A plan of action for seeking employment, including supporting documentation
such as CV and letter of application (30%)
A portfolio of evidence of activities demonstrating employability skills that
have been developed and the contexts in which this took place (LOs 1, 4 and 5)
30%
Log Book (40%)
Accurate record of work conducted from Week 7 until the offer letter is issued.
Log Book needs to be done on a weekly basis. A portfolio of evidence
demonstrating active pursuit of internship opportunities, and either
confirmation of being selected for an internship of at least 12 weeks duration or
a schedule of suitable activities planned that will provide opportunities for
personal and professional development equivalent to an internship of 12 weeks
duration (LOs 2, 3 and 4) 40%.

Students will be graded on a Pass or Fail upon submission in Week 12.

*Students will have a minimum of 1 meeting and a maximum of 3 meetings with


Academic Supervisor during Part 1.

Faculty of Business Management Ver. 3 June 2016

3. Part 2-Industrial Experience Period

This is a 12 weeks of industrial experience programme.

As per the requirement of the Malaysian Qualifications Agency, the industrial


experience will be offered during the year-end break after their 2nd Semester of
Year 2. This means they could enrol on to Semester 1 of Year 3 upon returning from
the industrial experience if they have fulfilled all requirements of the programme.
The start date of the briefing will be indicated in the Course Schedule when they
progress into the Semester 2 Year 2.

4. Objectives of Industrial Placement

a) Interpersonal and Social Skills


This objective is concerned with gaining an appreciation of human relationships. It
relates to such various abilities as working effectively as part of a team and as a
member of a hierarchy; mixing with others including superiors, peers and subordinates;
organising the work of others and exercising responsibility over them. Communication
skills are also an important part of this factor, and include the ability to act tactfully, to
present a case clearly, and to interpret the needs of others, whether articulated or
implied.

b) Insight into the World of Work


This objective is concerned with understanding the 'world of work'. It is about
understanding the constraints of working life, as well as being aware of the functional
relationships within and between organisations. An orientation toward work processes,
the relationship of work to the rest of society, and an understanding of the realities of
working life are all important elements of this factor.

c) Interrelationships of Theory and Practice


This objective is about relating theory to practice, and it describes how a placement
offers practical experience of the application of theoretical concepts. It is concerned
with appraising the usefulness of theory and academic knowledge at the practical level,
as well as offering a context within which to integrate the practical and theoretical parts
of an academic course. Typically, the placement offers an experience in working
environment whereby they are given the opportunity to apply what they have learned
in previous semesters. During placement, students will be able to practice their
knowledge and skills with the current work environment.

4
Faculty of Business Management Ver. 3 June 2016

d) Personal Development
This objective is about developing personal attributes like self-confidence, maturity
and self-reliance. The ability to accept responsibility, to work effectively - especially
under stress, and to build on previous knowledge and experience, all contribute to this
factor.

e) Additional and Indirect Benefits of Placements


Various benefits arise from work experience in addition to those directly related to a
training programme. Such benefits include opportunities for employment and
recruitment, course appraisal and review, and informed selection of course options and
project work. It gives university staff links to industry and commerce, and in return
employers gain closer links to the education sector. A placement can provide fresh
ideas and new experiences to all those who participate in it, such as meeting employers'
short-term project needs.

f) Career Preparation
This objective is about the contribution work experience makes to career development.
Knowledge of potential careers, and experience of them, as well as the development of
new areas of interest are important aspects of a placement. An insight into different
careers and the opportunities for recruitment provided are other significant aspects of
this factor.

g) Technical Development
This objective is concerned with the development of technical knowledge and
expertise. It is about being involved in doing the day to day tasks. It concerns
perceiving the needs of a task accurately and knowing how to extract information
quickly and effectively in order to complete the task at hand.

5. Type of Work During Placement

The structure of the placement is dependent on what work the employer requires. Our
only proviso is that the work is where possible, related to the students course of study.
Typically, the student may become part of a project team or work solo on a variety of
projects. We would encourage organisations to contact APU Careers Centre when they
have a role which may be suitable for one of our students, as we have a large number
of awards which combine a variety of skills. Some of the most successful placements
from the perspective of the employer and student have been challenging projects that
stretch the student and necessitate the use of problem-solving skills. However, it
should be said that students do need some guidance and structured help during the
placement from the employer and University, particularly in the first few months of the
placement.

However, students may draw evidence of their development of employability skills


from the following:-

5
Faculty of Business Management Ver. 3 June 2016
Internship of less than 40 hours per week for 12 weeks with any organisation
Occasional or casual work undertaken
Voluntary or charity work
Conduct of industry based projects during modules studied on their programme
Attendance at industrial talks, conferences, business events or training within or
outside university
Industrial visits or organisational exposure organised as part of the university
studies or other such
Participation in competitions
The final year project especially if related to external organisations and/or
involving industrial or professional fieldwork
Any other activity in which the employability skills can be further developed

6. Support for Students

The placements team is on hand to support the student along with the assigned Visit
Tutor/Academic Supervisor. The student is encouraged to overcome any difficulties
they may encounter themselves but the team is a support mechanism that is always
available.

7. Support for Companies

As with the students, the placements team wish to build a good relationship with the
companies and will endeavour to support the facilitation of a successful placement. A
placement work plan or project is discussed with the appointed Visit Tutor/Academic
Supervisor from the University and the students Industrial Mentor/Company
Supervisor at work. Assessment is made both by the firm using a feedback form and
via discussions during a Visit Tutor/Academic Supervisor visit(s) to the firm. The tutor
checks that the student is performing well and that there are no adverse personal issues.

8. Future Recruitment

A large number of employers view the placement as a potential induction period


leading to a full-time role after graduation. Some of our students who have recently
returned for the final year of the course are continuing their involvement with their
placement firms and are set to return as full time members of staff after graduation.

9. Remuneration

The placement is normally a paid period of employment. The rate varies according to
type, size and policy of industries. The rate is influenced by factors such as the worth
of the work undertaken and location. However, for companies registered with

6
Faculty of Business Management Ver. 3 June 2016
TalentCorp, the amount payable by the companies to the interns shall be a
minimum of RM500.

10.Employment Contract

The placement conditions of employment will be derived from a contract drawn up


between the firm and the student. A normal employment contract for short-
term/temporary staff is adequate.

Internship Mechanism and Process Flow

1. Briefing, Workshop and Pre-Registration

The first briefing about the internship will be Week 3 of the Semester 2 of Year 2. At
this point students are given the broad outline of the internship. They will be generally
briefed on what to expect during their internship. This is to mentally prepare students
that they will have to do an internship as well as plan their leaves accordingly.

A second briefing will be given in the Week 14 of the Semester 2 of Year 2. This will
be indicated in the Course Schedule. This will be detailed briefing where students will
be given a copy of the Industrial Placement Handbook and briefed on the Assessment
and Grading Criteria. This briefing will be followed by a workshop session on how to
write Curriculum Vitae (CV), Application Cover Letter and Interview Skills. Upon
completion of the briefing and workshop students will be required to pre-register for
the internship according to their area of specialism and identify their prospective
employers. It is the students responsibility to find their prospective employers.

2. Application, Interview and Selection

Subsequent to pre-registration, students are now ready to source and submit their
internship applications to the prospective employers of their choice. Application for
internship placement is divided into two parts, the first part is the Self-Internship
Placement where students source for their own employers and apply for at least
three different employers in one month time.

It is an important provision on internship and requirement that will allow students to


experience all the stages of searching and applying for jobs. Students must produce all
the necessary evidence that they have tried and attempted to apply for jobs to three
different employers and yet they are not able to get placement from the employers.
Sample of evidence are e-mail replies and written document.

When students provide sufficient evidence of the difficulties of getting a placement, the
students can seek help from the APU CAREERS CENTRE or the Internship
Coordinator. The APU CAREERS CENTRE and Internship Coordinator will try their
best to find corporate/industry partners willing to assist and provide internship
placement for the students. Students who opted for such assistance will have no choice
on the type of employer and location. APU CAREERS CENTRE will finalise the
placement.

Students are expected to attend job interview sessions during the application period for
screening and selection by employers. Students will have to send the CV, Application
Cover Letter together with the APU Support Letter.

8
Faculty of Business Management Ver. 3 June 2016
The Letter to Employers will be provided by Administration Office. Students are
encouraged to select companies within West Malaysia. However, international students
may select companies (sourcing on their own) in their home countries.

Strictly, a student must do his internship in one organisation/company only. If you


change your organisation/ company in between your internship, you will have to
extend your internship period for a minimum of 12 weeks. You are not allowed to carry
forward the internship period that you have done in the first organisation/ company as
the internship will be null and void once you resign from the organisation/company
before you finish your internship. You are to submit the internship report for a single
organisation/ company only. You are allowed to work in different departments/ fields
within the same organisation/ company.

At this stage, students are expected to have their own internship portfolios ready and
available at any time. A copy of all documents used for applying for the internship
should be furnished to the Internship Coordinator who will file them in individual
student files.

3. Placement, Confirmation, Approval & Orientation

The Letter of Appointment/Letter of Offer given by the host company must be signed
by students if they agreed to it. The placement requires verification and confirmation
from the APU CAREERS CENTRE and approval from the School. Once the
application for Internship is successful, the following actions must be carried out by
students, APU CAREERS CENTRE, School and Host Company:

a) The student must forward a copy of Host Company Letter of Appointment/Letter


of Offer, completed Placement Record Form (filled in by students) and
Industrial Placement Agreement/Approval Form (filled in by host company) to
Internship Coordinator.

b) Internship Coordinator will contact and check the authenticity of the company and
will immediately get the approval of the School for the said internship placement;

c) Host company is to assign a supervisor and provide briefing to the Interns on the
expectations, rules and regulations of the company. Interns will be treated just like
any other employee in the company.

d) Interns to obey and follow all the regulations set by the host company.
