TIME TO TRY IT OUT “FOR REAL”
Internships are exploratory in nature and provide the student with the opportunity to get a feel for a career that they’d like to pursue. This on-the job training uses the career and technical knowledge obtained in high school courses and expands on those abilities. An internship includes a classroom component as well so the student is prepared to successfully transition into the world of work.
Each internship is different and relies on a training plan to formulate what the student will be doing and learning while they are on the job site. Internships work for students who have taken Automotive courses and would like to get into a real shop, Culinary students that would like to experience a restaurant setting, Marketing students that want to work at a local retailer, or Manufacturing students that are ready to test their tech skills at a local business, to name a few.
