Designed to assist postsecondary area vocational-technical schools in developing internship programs, this manual provides basic explanations and steps to help understand the objectives of the Athens Tech internship program and how these objectives are met. An introduction contains a definition; purpose; explanation of benefits to student, school, and businesses and industry; and an overview of the guide. The section, The Internship Term, discusses when the internship occurs and why. Supervision of the Internship Program lists the qualifications desirable for and materials needed by the individual who coordinates the program. Internship Prerequisites explains requirements students must complete before beginning internship. Discussion of training sites focuses on finding sites, approval, and employer cooperation. A section on student responsibilities explains written material and assignments for which students are responsible. These problems are then discussed: problem students, problem training sites, family businesses, financial aid to students. The section on evaluation reviews the importance of critiquing program elements. Appendixes, amounting to approximately two-thirds of the manual, contain sample forms used and the final report of the project to develop this manual. (YLB)
