Internships – Preparation

Internships are career preparation work-based learning experiences in a particular occupational area that assist the student in developing technical competencies while they earn school credit. It is a short-term practical experience, giving the student a broad overview of the career area, and is supervised by an employer and a teacher. These experiences are especially useful when they supplement the technical competencies that the school can deliver by providing access to tools, equipment, facilities, and expertise that generally are not available at the school. The work experience is evaluated by the teachers and employers, with input from the student.
