JSB172 Professional Academic Skills Employers expect graduates to be competent in different professional skills and areas. This unit provides students with essential literacy and workplace-relevant skills reflected in different pieces of assessment that are used in the 'Real World'. This will enable students to utilise these skills throughout their justice degree and transfer them in future to the workplace as a competent criminal justice professional. Successful completion of the unit and the assessment items will enable students to add vital workplace skills to their resume. JSB158: Policing Diversity The issue of policing diversity is salient because of the nature of police work and the type of community engagement it entails. This unit will focus on a range of issues facing police and policing in relation to the growing diversity of Australia's population. A significant component of this unit will be a focus on the specific issues regarding the relationship between police and diverse communities such as those identified by race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, gender-identity difference, disability and homelessness. Police awareness training and identifying strategies to prevent misconduct and maintain awareness of bias towards diverse people will also be a focus within the unit. JSB288: Comparative Policing in a Complex World This unit is designed to help students understand why policing in a complex world should be considered as an ongoing comparative global endeavour. The unit seeks to explore the possibilities and limitations of comparative policing from a global perspective by examining policing case studies in both national contexts (for example, comparing Australian police organisations' policing practices) and in an international context (comparing global police organisations' policing practices). Within the framework of comparative criminology, students will examine policing theory versus police practice, policing of deviance and social response, and police policy versus police practice in relation to socio-demographic and geo-political data JSB390: Professional Employment Skills Employers expect graduates to be competent, professional and prepared to meet the demands of the workplace. This unit will prepare Justice Graduates for professional practice by ensuring they are job ready and able to demonstrate essential workplace relevant skills. Students will learn how to reflect on everything they have learned throughout their Bachelor of Justice and use those skills to apply for jobs as a competent professional. Conducted in a series of workshops, students will learn successful ways to negotiate job applications and refine interview and networking skills, answer selection criteria, and prepare themselves for the real world.
