6 Summary of Week 1
By this point, you should have a better understanding of what internships and work experience are. You’ve considered what a typical internship looks like and explored the variety of other work experiences available. You’ve also reflected on your own work experiences and what you gained from them.
You should now be able to:
- describe an internship and understand the difference between that and other forms of work experience
- identify key learning points from your own work experiences so far
- clarify your aims for the course.
Next week, you’ll focus on what you can gain personally from undertaking an internship or other form of work experience.
You can now go to Week 2.
