OPAD provides opportunities for internship and apprentices to carry out work experience in our organization, allowing them to learn new skills or languages. Work placements abroad improve employability and can ease the transition from education and training to employment, while strengthening cooperation within institutions and other organizations.
What is an Internship?
An internship is a temporary position with an emphasis on on-the-job training rather than merely employment, and it can be paid or unpaid. Internships are experiential learning opportunities that help bridge the gap between classroom learning and the workplace. Students are encouraged to obtain internships in their industry before you are qualified for an actual job.
There are three different types of internships: paid, unpaid/volunteer and cooperative education (also known as co-op or for-credit). Out of the three type of internship we offer two, unpaid/volunteer and cooperation education.
The benefits of completing an internship are invaluable and include:
• Gaining work experience
• Making contacts and networking
• Building skills and experience for your resume
• Gaining a competitive advantage over other candidates during a job search
We have partners and collaborate with institution and NGOs
