Students participate in work-related experience in a company setting where they perform the roles and functions of one or many occupations specific to a cluster and pathway that aligns with their personalized plan of study. Internships can be structured to be short or long-term depending on when they are offered and the amount of time a student can commit to the experience over a period of time. Students should have clearly defined goals for how the internship advances their skill sets and allows them to demonstrate their knowledge through applied learning. Students should have a designated supervisor who will evaluate their performance as part of an exit interview.
Internships can be administered as a career preparation activity at the secondary and postsecondary education level.
