Advantages of an IELA Internship Programme

An investment in your future

“The best investment you can make in life is to invest in yourself…..” so at IELA we encourage our Interns to immerse themselves completely in their new work place environment which will be filled with new perspectives so that they can learn more about themselves than they ever thought possible. Whatever your motivation, our Internship programmes will help you on the path to your dream career.

Gain valuable work experience

The hands-on work experience that our Interns receive is invaluable, making this one of the most important benefits of our Internship programme. Our Interns have the opportunity to apply acquired knowledge to real-life work experiences, witnessing first-hand the day-to-day activities and tasks that they can expect to encounter when they join their chosen field in the future.

Explore a Career Path

By completing our Internship Programme, we can assist you in choosing the correct career path whilst concentrating on developing your English Language skills within the workplace.

Gives you an advantage when entering the jobs market

Our Internship experience, incorporating our English Language classes, makes you more marketable for future employers who are looking for a candidate who has relevant work experience and also has confidence in conversing in English with their customers and colleagues.

Gain Confidence

Our Internship Programme allows you to gain confidence in your skills and ability by completing tasks assigned to you in the workplace. It is also an opportunity to apply and develop your English language skills as you will be working with colleagues who will converse with you in English. This has proven to improve confidence in Interns who maybe would not have been confident enough to speak English at a business / workplace level in the past.
