Department Of Public Works Internships

An internship is a period of work experience offered by an organisation for a limited period of time. Once confined to medical graduates, the term is now used for a wide range of placements within businesses, non-profit organisations and government agencies. They are typically undertaken by students and graduates looking to gain relevant skills and experience in a particular field. Employers benefit from these placements because they often recruit employees from their best interns, who have known capabilities, thus saving time and money in the long run.

Objectives of Internship
  To resolve the general shortage of qualified and skilled people in the workforce by encouraging graduates to equip themselves with the necessary practical experience..
  To assist in meeting the strategic staffing needs of the department by providing practical and accelerated work experience programmes that expose interns to specific occupations.
  To address the problem of youth unemployment and provide unemployed graduates with valuable work experience and skills to enhance their employability.
  To provide opportunities to gain some practical experience for students who are required to do this to earn credits towards a qualification.
  To contribute to accelerated service delivery through the improved introduction of skilled personnel in the public sector and improved equitable access to the public sector employment for rural and marginalized groups such as women and the disabled.
  To contribute to life long learning and increase awareness among students of job and career opportunities in the public service.
