Tuesdays and Thursdays are "Internship Days" and our students are at their internship sites working along side their mentors. They design projects at the site to build their personal qualities and academic skills. Students need to be able to take initiative and have the skills needed to secure an internship placement, attend independently and contribute to the site. This is not a work experience program.
The internship program is a key component of the Met School. One of the things that makes us unique is that students are able to explore a variety of interests, including the Arts, sciences, and trades. Our students have incredible experiences linked to their interests and supported by competent, professional, and caring mentors in our community.
The work completed on internship days goes toward career development, core, and other elective credits.
To get an internship, students first develop resumés, do research on their interests, and learn about careers and fields of study in Winnipeg. With their teacher they interview experts in the field and make decisions about what internship placement might be a good fit for them. It is an amazing part of the Met School and students develop strong professional skills and personal qualities.
Examples of Met School internship placements:
Bakeries, automotive shops, daycare centers, radio stations, graphic design companies, pharmaceutical manufacturing lab, computer & technology sites, hospitals & animal clinics, renovation & construction companies, law office, Seven Oaks School Division schools, TV stations, film and animation sites. The possibilities are endless!
