What is an Internship?
An internship is a well-defined short-term work and learning experience to help students prepare for a chosen career field. Students apply the skills learned in the classroom to a career experience. Typically, students will be working on projects while working alongside practicing professionals.
An internship is not a part-time job. It is an extension of the Grand Prairie ISD Career and Technical Education Program. Most importantly, it is an opportunity for students to increase their knowledge in a career choice by being challenged in a business environment. Business leaders in a real-world setting will supervise the student interns and complete weekly performance evaluations. These evaluations are a direct correlation to academic grades in CTE practicum courses.
Grand Prairie ISD provides student transportation to and from all intern locations. Not only is this for the safety of our students,
but also ensures all students are provided the valuable experience that internships offer.
