Specialist Areas in Education
Before you can select the perfect internship in education, you first must select an area of speciality. Education is a broad field, with a variety of different career paths open to young graduates. These include the following;
Teaching or classroom assistant positions: These positions represent the frontline of teaching, in which educational theory and exemplary management skills combine. On this sort of internship, you will gain first hand teaching experience which you can carry forward as you develop your career.
Education logistics and administration: Supporting teachers, overseeing the organisation of the curriculum and other educational structures, ensuring teaching staff are up to speed with the latest industry concepts; these are some of the duties you will encounter on this kind of education internship.
Implementation of corporate training: Education doesn’t stop upon graduation from high school or university. The implementation of corporate and workplace training, as well as other levels of adult education, is a growing field and one which requires highly trained, highly effective graduates.
Legal compliance officer: Working with educational institutions to ensure legal compliance, workplace safety and student well-being is one of the duties that a graduate will be handling on a legal compliance education placement.
Research and curriculum development: Education needs structure and consistency, which is precisely what you will be providing if you decide to pursue this speciality area.
