Internship gives students and trainees a head start on the career path they will embark on after graduating from their schools or training centres. It also adds value to the entire learning process.
Similar to apprenticeship, internship is about offering supervised practical training and giving students of trainee a feel of what they are to expect in real situation within an allocated period.

The period varies from about six months to a year, depending on the school and the programme they undertake. Internship helps students to manage their expectations and, more importantly, to bring what they have learnt in class to the actual work place. Such exposure also help them to better understand the nature of the profession, the industry they are keen to explore, and learn more about their strength and weaknesses in order for them to cope with unforeseen challenges. In short, internship prepares students to work and excel in the real world.
