CTE Internships

  • Career Exploration - Networking - Work Experience

    WCSD is proud to offer students an opportunity to engage with local businesses to learn about career opportunities, understand job skills and expectations, and develop a network of resources to assist students with success after graduation.

    Group Internships

    Group internships are organized by career field, facilitated by a teacher with knowledge of the industry and focus on understanding the range of career opportunities available in the field. Groups of 10–25 students visit a variety of industry sites, engage in projects associated with the career field, and gain an understanding of the knowledge, skills and education needed for specific pathways within the field. To earn credit, students must attend orientation, all scheduled classes, meet specific learning outcomes, complete assignments, and participate in a final project presentation. Group internships start the second week of each semester and end the week prior to finals.
