CTE Internship Or Work Based Learning

It is best to start with your CTE capstone course teacher, however, NJUHSD’s Internship Coordinators Kelsey Langel - klangel@njuhsd.com (NU, NPA, SS) or Christina Levinson - clevinson@njuhsd.com (BR, GHS, SS) can also be contacted.
 
Internships and Scholarships
NJUHSD encourages all CTE capstone students to participate in an onsite or offsite internship or work based learning experience.  An internship is the culmination of a student’s college and career readiness experience. Internships deepen a student’s understanding of the environment, expectations, and requirements of the workplace, professions and industries. Internships allow students to take an up-close look at what a “real job” is like and how the skills they learn in school can be put into action in the workplace.
 
Internships may occur during a student’s junior or senior year or during the summer between a student’s junior and senior year in high school. Internships may be paid or un-paid work-based learning experiences with direct supervision and evaluation by an adult in the workplace. Each intern will have a written individualized training plan connected to targeted outcomes. Paid internships allow students to boost their confidence and motivation, practice positive work habits, learn about personal finances, and understand the value of financial independence.
