November is Internship Month for the Saba Comprehensive School’s Vocational and upper-forms PraktijkOnderijs (PrO) students. They will be interning at various organizations around the island throughout the month of November 2018. The students will start their internships on Friday, November 2nd and continue until Friday, November 30th for a total of 4 weeks. The students are looking forward to positive educational and job enriching experiences.
Interning with businesses is an integral part of the students’ Vocational and PrO educational programs. It allows them to practice skills and experience the day to day operations of various business places. Experiencing the daily operations of a business is not something that can be taught in a classroom. Thus, the SCS appreciates the important role of the businesses in the students’ educational development.
These internships are mostly done with businesses recognized by ROA CN. The recognized businesses go through mandatory training with ROA CN. This training aims at giving business owners and job supervisors the tools necessary for assisting, guiding and facilitating students with their internships.
The Saba Comprehensive School is striving to build a greater working relationship with the businesses on the island. We would like to thank Satel NV, Corner Imports Automotive, the Department of Public Works and the Benevolent Foundation for giving our students the opportunity to learn from them during this Internship period. The SCS wishes our students and the businesses much success in the upcoming internships.
