What do professional internships consist of?

Professional internships are a way to show your performance within the labor field. Through this type of activity, your potential is established by doing a job directly within a company in the sector in which you want to focus your career.

Most training centers have prior agreements with companies, institutions and associations that they consider interesting and that, in addition, commit to providing a job so that you can gain experience and feel if what you are studying is ideal based on your personal motivation and skills.

What are internships for?

When studying on campus, a certain professional career may be attractive to you. But where you test your skills to perform within it is precisely when you are part of the staff of a company

In the company you will have responsibilities and you will carry out the tasks for which you have prepared yourself in class.

Even if you are currently working within a completely different area than the one you study within the FP, training in workplaces can help you put your skills into practice in the field of work for which you are training.

Also, for all those who are working and studying simultaneously , there is an authorization that can be requested from the work center to do professional practices. 

The Individual Training Permit of up to 200 hours will be granted in order to carry out professional practices in the area corresponding to the career area of ​​study of the student in question.

Competences developed in professional practices

Work practices serve as a link between “knowing” and “doing” , since each student executes what they have learned so far within a company.

When you carry out professional internships you have the opportunity to reinforce your learning , expand your ability to make decisions and improve your social communication skills by being in contact with other people who are part of the same field of work.
