dc.description.abstract This paper examines the richness of an applied communication group project which incorporates writing skills, interpersonal skills, team dynamics, problem solving, decision making, time and stress management, interviewing and both individual and group presentation skills. In addition students were asked to maintain learning diaries for reflective learning and also to carry out peer assessment at the end of the process. This project was developed in response to the professional competencies required by accountants identified in research undertaken for the Institute of Chartered Accountants of New Zealand. The project is also intended to develop emotional intelligence. The workplace project is undertaken by a team of four students from diverse backgrounds and requires them to negotiate with an employer to carry out the project in an organisation. The project is in its second semester, and is still a little on the edge for students in the early stages of their tertiary education. en_NZ
