Course Description

This course is taken in conjunction with a CTE content course (2021-22 school year limited to Business and Information Technology programs ) 

Internship is a Work-Based Learning experience that places the student in a real workplace environment to develop and practice career-related knowledge and bring together skills and knowledge for a specific career field related to the student’s career interests, abilities, and goals.

Internships may be paid or unpaid.

Meaningful and authentic connections are made to classroom learning and accompanied by structured reflection activities.

Students participating in internships are guided by a formal, written training plan that defines specific academic and workplace skills to be mastered.

Credit for internship experiences during the school year should be based upon the student’s successful completion of the course and continuous, satisfactory employment throughout the school year. Students should achieve a minimum of 280 hours for the school year (70 hours per quarter).
