Through Thames Valley's Work Internship programs, students have the opportunity to obtain the skills they need for direct entry into the workforce after they leave high school.
Work Internship combines industry training with an individualized school program to prepare students for their chosen career. The program is structured so students experience personal success, and leave high school with the pride and confidence of a well-prepared worker. Instead of focusing on academics within the traditional classroom, students get to take advantage of hands-on experience in the workplace.
Hundreds of community partners across the Valley provide students with work opportunities throughout the year. Students learn vital employability skills and often acquire letters of recommendation, part-time employment, and a network of workplace contacts.
Work Internship programs are widely available at 22 secondary schools across the Valley. Contact your area high school for more information about your local program.
