Internship Steps for ROP Courses
Here at the Career Education Center, internships have proven to be an extremely effective method of enhancing our educational offerings by providing a combination of classroom instruction and paid or unpaid instruction in a business or industry setting. The outcome of on-the-job training is a highly effective means of developing solid employment skills. All ROP courses must include an internship.
Internships enable sharing of the education process between the ROP teacher and the manager/employer of the internship site. The student's career preparation is, therefore, jointly planned and supervised. This shared responsibility for learning is facilitated plans ensure that the students tat the training site experience a progression of learning activities.
These methods of instruction are mutually beneficial to students, employers, and to the CEC. Employers have access to a pool potential employees with proven occupational competencies, and students attain a realistic understanding of the workplace, develop appropriate work habits, and establish training and employment records.
