Co-operative Education Programme
Realizing the expectations and standards required by current employers in the commercial world, Pine Academy has designed the internship programme for students of the Diploma and Bachelor level. This is the Co-operative Education Programme (CEP) where students work as they study. Upon completion, they will earn academic credits equivalent to 1 – 2 subjects.
Internship companies will be contributing to the national skills development initiatives by participating in this internship programme; by accepting students to work as interns in their companies for the period of 12 – 16 weeks (3 – 4 months). There are 2 types of CEP programme as the following:
- Students who are completing the final semester of Diploma: Students will work according to the company’s normal hours but will be required to attend classes on Monday and Wednesday from 9 am to 1 pm. Students will report to work in the afternoon after their classes.
- Students who are completing the final semester of Bachelor Degree: Students will work according to the company’s normal hours and will not be required to any classes, but are required to prepare a final presentation upon completion of the CEP, to the school.
Pine Academy works closely with an appointed supervisor from the internship company to monitor the progress of the intern throughout the duration of this programme. A representative from Pine Academy will visit the intern at the workplace at least once during the CEP. Students have to submit weekly reports as part of their coursework.
