The Administrative Internship: Current Trends.
Blake, Roy F.
This study attempted to determine the nature of the internship as it is currently being used in administrative preparation programs. Data collection included site visits, phone interviews, and written documentation from seven state agencies and 20 institutions of higher learning. The results showed that no universal pattern exists in regard to the requirements of an administrative internship for certification. In states where specific competencies are prescribed for the internship, the various institutions add additional competencies that are generated by the department acting either on its own or in consort with the field in a formal or informal way. Finally, even when the internship is not specified by certification requirements, a majority of institutions include it as a component of their degree programs for preparation of school administrators. The second half of the paper analyzes the purposes, structures, and specific practices of internship programs in various institutions. (Author/LD)
