Cultivating Business for Practiums | Arlington ISD Students
The Arlington Independent School District is now working to secure practicum opportunities for the upcoming 2020-21 school year, with the first placement of students in September 2020.
We invite your support to open up a practicum experience to offer job shadowing, mentoring and provide practical application experiences to participating students. The practicum will benefit AISD high school seniors who wish to have a learning experience in entry level and middle skill careers. Practicum opportunities can be made available either as paid or unpaid.
Students will work a minimum of six (6) hours per week during the school day. Pending the students schedule and employer needs, hours may have the ability to increase . The goal of the program is to encourage students to explore a career of interest, complete the school year practicum, and gain a learning experience of the work environment .
Call Kari at AISD's Dan Dipert Career + Technical Center's Practicum Specialist and schedule a tour of the Tech Center, and learn about the difference between an internship and a practicum and how does that change things for you, the employer.
