106611 Graduate Cert in Australian Rural Leadership
Students will travel to a country that is culturally diverse, has significant trade relations with Australia and has a robust agricultural sector. As a group they will be exposed to experiences that help them to understand the national, economic, political, environmental and socio-cultural characteristics and contexts of the country. Through the opportunities undertaken in the country, students will be able to discern how these characteristics and contexts differ from and resonate with Australia. Experiences include (inter alia): an understanding of the role of the Australian High Commission or other Australian Government organisations in the country; observation of rural agricultural and environmental initiatives; tour of landmarks of the country that demonstrate socio-cultural initiatives and historic change; and presentations and interactions that provide political, philosophical and spiritual perspectives. Prior to travelling, students will undertake selected readings to complement their understanding of the country and leadership concepts that provide perspectives on social, political and historic values.
