Amy McKay

Career Development Coordinator

West Carteret High School



Amy McKay

Course Description:

Internship: a work-based learning experience where a student participates in the daily operations of a worksite under the direct supervision of a business mentor.


A CTE Internship allows for additional development of career and technical competencies within a general career field. Internships allow students to observe and participate in daily operations, develop direct contact with job personnel, ask questions about particular careers, and perform certain job tasks. This activity is exploratory and allows the student to get hands-on experience in a number of related activities. The teacher, student, and the business community jointly plan the organization, implementation, and evaluation of an internship, regardless of whether it is an unpaid or paid internship.
