Internships and Apprenticeships
The terms “internship” and “apprenticeship” are commonly considered synonyms. While there are some similarities between them, the two are inherently different. Mainly speaking the internship is a voluntary or in any case optional activity of work based learning while the apprenticeship is a compulsory step in a training or professional path so-called work based training.
With this premise in mind, the terms “internship” and “apprenticeship” will be considered synonyms for their administrative activation procedures.
At the moment, the Internship and Apprenticeship Office activates the curricular internships as set out in the study plan of every single First and Second Level course. All students duly enrolled are eligible.
The duration of the internship is calculated on the basis of the maximum number of academic credits (CFA) indicated in the study plan of the relevant course. Its activation includes a number of different phases which involve a promoter, in this case, the Accademia, a host and the student. The process concludes with the signing of an agreement and an individual training programme.
Apprenticeships can be activated following a direct contact between the student and the host company/organization, subject to the authorization of the Internship and Apprenticeship Office, between the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera and the host company/organization or following the request on behalf of the host company/organization to the Internship and Apprenticeship Office.
The student, in order to activate his internship, must:
The host, for its part, must:
The Internship and Traineeships Office accepts the activation requests submitted by students and examines the documents sent by the host subject by filling in the fields pertaining to the promoter, inserting the letterhead, printing them and sending them for stipulation through the student.
At the end of the apprenticeship, the tutor of the host organization must download the “Final Internship Report by the host tutor” fill it in item by item, use the letterhead of the host organization/company, print it in duplicate copies, sign it, stamp it and consign it to the student or alternatively send it to the Internship and Apprenticeship Office by registered post.
The student must take the necessary steps to contact his or her teacher/tutor, arrange for them to compile and sign the “Final Internship Report by apprentice’s didactic tutor”. Students must compile their part and sign the Report and subsequently submit the Report to the Internship and Apprenticeship Office.
Internship and Apprenticeship Office once all the final apprenticeship documents have been obtained, the Office takes the necessary steps to evaluate their accuracy and then proceeds with the registration on the online secretariat.
Companies, private and public institutions can submit apprenticeship and professional collaboration opportunities by downloading the specific form and, after completing it, send it by email to the Internship and Apprenticeship office. The Office, having assessed the suitability of the opportunity, forwards it on to the students, who if interested, can send their application directly to the company/institution.
