The district of Waldeck-Frankenberg offers internships for pupils. Among other things, short-term internships are offered as part of vocational preparation for the various types of schools or simply for students' own career orientation during the school holidays. Many areas of the administration are available for this purpose. Whether it ends up being an insight into the activities of the Social Affairs Department, the Building Department or the Transport Department (or another of the many departments in the building) depends entirely on the applicant's interests and can also be communicated to the district in the application.
The district offers internships for students in a wide variety of fields. Whether studying public administration, nature and environmental protection, social work or another subject. The district administration offers many opportunities for a student internship, e.g. for the BPS I or the recognition internship as part of the social work degree.
Our intern Pia says about the annual internship:
"I decided to do an internship at the district of Waldeck-Frankenberg because I am very interested in the work processes in a public authority. The work in the youth department is very varied. So far, I have been assigned to different areas and have thus gained a good insight into the work that has to be done on a daily basis. I like the internship very much and I can very well imagine an apprenticeship as an administrative assistant with the district in the future. Therefore, I will also apply for an apprenticeship."
