實習安排流程

大專院校將參加此計畫的學生姓名和電子郵件地址傳送給AES

1AES將聯繫學生,要求參加的並簽署GDPR協議,藉由實習手冊概述即將申請的流程,並要求完成我們的實習問卷。我們也將在此階段要求他們提供簡歷和方便面試的時間。

註 : GDPR 全名為「General Data Protection Regulation」(一般資料保護規定),類似於台灣的個資法。

2AES接收並檢查完整的申請文件。

3AES將與學生進行視訊會議面談。

4AES將聯繫各個企業,以查看他們當前是否能夠接納實習生。我們最初可能會聯315家公司,取決於領域的競爭程度; 但是,最終也只會找到一個合適的企業提供潛在的職缺。

5)如果實習企業對你的申請有興趣,我們將發送簡歷給他們。大多數實習企業在聯AES之前,需要花一個星期或更久的時間考慮實習申請,視他們實習企業的繁忙程度而定。

6)通常實習企業會安排與學生面試。

7)一旦實習企業決定提供一個職缺,我們將通知學生,並發送確認電子郵件,概述其職缺/職務,並提供他們公司詳細的資訊。

8)如果學生對職務安排感到滿意,他們還將簽署AES同意接受表格。

9)在這樣一個競爭激烈的市場中,學生不大可能獲得多個職缺。AES員工會根據他們的學術要求,技能和未來的職業目標,確保為學生安排最適合他們的實習。

10)如果實習企業對你的申請不感興趣或學生認為這職務不適合自己,我們將再次開始新的媒合過程。

11)一旦學生收到確認電子郵件後,他們可以直接聯繫實習企業,詢問任何相關問題。

12AES還將在開始實習日前提供線上指導,包括在一家英國公司需知所有注意事項,以及對他們和AES的期望。


學術要求

實習評估

AES員工將在實習的期中安排一次線上會議。理想情況下,首先會先與主管進行視訊會議,然後再輪到實習生。AES實習企業人員將與學生討論主管提出的任何問題,反之亦然。一旦實習結束時,AES也將要求企業主管完成線上的實習評估。實習計畫結束時,學生原就讀的大專院校將會收到兩份評估報告的副本(如果需要)。如果相關學術機構(大專院校)或特定科系要求實習生主管需要完成其他書面文件,以便為了讓學生獲得學分,請您確認這些事宜在申請時已提交給AES

 

學術課程

由於每所大學的規定不同,有些學生的實習可能不會計入學分,在這種情況下,將不會有任何學術方面的內容。或者,原就讀的大專院校除了實習安排外,也可以開辦補充課程讓學生參加。另一個選擇是透過我們學校的記錄,AES可以給予特定的線上實習研討會授予學分, AES將為每所大學安排最佳選擇。

 

學習目標

在完成AES實習問卷調查的同時,AES會要求學生好好思考他們的學習目標。我們還會請他們在到職的最初幾週內與主管討論。但是,我們也了解,學習目標可能會在實習期間發生變化,因此,學生和實習企業之間需要進行公開溝通交流。

實習心得

AES was able to give me an opportunity during a time of much uncertainty. Just when I was feeling a loss of purpose, as Covid-19 took us all by surprise, AES reached out to me and was able find a great match for my skill set at Thomson Foundation. Each experience I’ve had has been delightful. I would recommend AES to anyone searching for opportunities abroad, as they make the experience manageable and worthwhile.

Anna, Virtual Journalism Intern

--------------------------------------

Having the opportunity to intern with AFFORD this summer has allowed me to gain experience in a field I wasn't used to and I was able to learn a lot about International Affairs. This internship has strengthened my research and data analysis skills and I was very lucky to be a part of a very welcoming team. I am glad I got to spend my summer working for AFFORD and I am excited to see what I will learn in the coming weeks.

Lidya, Virtual Finance and Economics Intern

--------------------------------------

The best of the internship so far is the fact that I am able to work alongside and build relationships with outstanding professionals on the other side of the globe right from my house.

I loved the opportunity to work with a company with such a different perspective on the world. They have really helped broaden my perspective. I loved my time with Xelix!

2021暑期課程介紹

Course Description

The online internship support module offered by AES is a unique educational experience that gives you the opportunity to apply a carefully constructed support programme to your workplace experience and the social environment of the host culture, whilst also developing your professional skills and earning academic credit.

The course is a forum for you to contextualize and discuss the wider significance of your internship activities: we will therefore use a variety of formats in the regular online meetings which will include lecture, discussion, presentations, and workshops. Above all, the meetings are designed to give you the unique opportunity to listen to what one another are doing, compare and contrast your activities with others and consider the ways in which your activities connect with the wider context of the London employment ecosystem.

Specifically, we will examine a number of key issues and consider how they operate in London and in the wider global community.

● The post-Covid 19 workplace

● Evolving technologies and their impact on work practices and areas of opportunity

● Social Justice

● Multiculturalism - specifically the influence of the BLM movement

● Media and Politics

● Gender and the Workplace

Course Overview

The course is designed to complement your internship experience by exploring contemporary issues withing the scope of the internship allied to the specific range factors associated with each individual student`s major.

It is, necessarily, a medium by which the subjective and the objective must be accommodated. As such the course puts a great deal of emphasis on analysing the nature of the experience in relation to the expectations of each individual student.

Course Policy and Requirements

The work that you perform on site should be viewed as a source academic fieldwork for the journal notes that you submit. Whilst job performance, attendance and attitude are all important, it is the written work, presentations and participation in Focus Seminars and class discussion which account for the greatest portion of the grade.

The course (seminars, lectures, activities and written work) carries the internship credit on your transcripts under two UConn courses:

o UNIV 3991 – Interdisciplinary Internship Field Experience (one to six credits)

o UNIV 3993 – International Study (one credit)

For UNIV 3991, you will receive one credit for every forty hours of internship work completed, from a minimum of forty (one credit) to a maximum of two-hundred and forty (six credits).

All students must be participating in an AES internship placement to participate on the course.

Course Objectives

This course is designed to build, develop and document your analytical and critical thinking skills about the internship experience, and through participation, evaluate your own contribution in context.

You will be provided with tools and theory to understand the practices of the British workplace and cultural environment so that you can then compare these with the US workplace and culture.

Through attending the online Seminars, participating in class discussion, and applying the relevant readings and activities, you will learn about the context of the society and culture where you are interning.

You will demonstrate a deeper understanding of the host work culture by completion of assignments that complement the discussions and lectures on the workplace and culture.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course you should have been able:

To apply the skills obtained from your internship role and to evaluate the contributions you have made to daily operations in the organisation

To gain in-depth knowledge of the organisation in which you work, and to reflect analytically on this in both oral and written reports

To develop the ability to think logically and critically

To develop skills to live and work in a globalised environment and multicultural society

To understand the degree to which the pandemic and more recent socio-cultural forces are impacting the workplace

Developmental Outcomes

Throughout the course and your internship experience you should demonstrate:

 responsibility & accountability

 independence & interdependence

 goal orientation

 self-confidence

 resilience

 appreciation of differences

Methodology

1. YOUR INTERNSHIP provides you with a unique opportunity to learn by active participation at your host organisation in order to develop your vocational skills and aptitudes, critical analytical skills, and assist your future professional development. You will be able to develop your self-confidence and your own ability to practice leadership in your workplace, as well as analyse your organisation’s contribution to wider British society and economy. You will also be able to create and develop a network of international contacts to assist your future professional development

2. THE ACADEMIC COURSE is intended as a forum for you to connect the work which you are doing at your internship with its broader social and cultural context, and also to consider the ways in which your work activities reveal the nature of London’s social and cultural – especially workplace – dynamics. There will therefore be a mixture of lecture sessions, group discussions of internship experiences and presentations, as well as reflective writing through field notes. The seminar sessions allow you to participate actively in debate and to interact with your colleagues and peers, whilst student presentations give you the opportunity to showcase your achievements and share your research findings.

3. The bi-weekly meetings throughout the programme are effected by Google Meetings, or one of the many alternative video conferencing media widely available today. Full information concerning all procedures will be released during orientation. Please note that the nature of the online element to your programme will require each participant to ensure they have made provision for each meeting and that appropriate arrangements are made to ensure the meetings are conducted in a professional manner. Faculty reserve the right to terminate connections if minimum standards are not observed.

The course is interactive and collaborative and requires your active participation for you to get the best out of your virtual internship.

Assignment Elements

Please note the assignments accounted for here are in addition to those required by the home institution.

Generic Grade Scale

1. Weekly Journal & Internship Participation (25%)

What is the weekly journal?

Your weekly journal is your record of your experience, as well as a reference point for discussion of topics such as effective research strategies, the ethics and challenges of cross-cultural internships, post-covid 19 strategies and other contemporary issues.

You will maintain a weekly journal which should address the following:

● Your main activities and achievements at your internship

● Weekly summaries evaluating your performance that week, and wherever possible, your colleagues as well. Each week you will be expected to examine a theme from your programme and account for its relevance in context.

● Your personal experiences of the changing nature of the workplace and work activities as the consequences of the pandemic manifest themselves into a `new normal’ globally. Other contemporary pressures should be researched too. In particular the impact the BLM movement is having on the workplace, and just how technology may be changing….everything!

You should submit your notes to your instructor weekly by email attachment as a Word document.

Your journal will be due weekly starting week two of the semester – they will not be graded at this stage, but may receive feedback and comments. You should write at least once a week, and they should be submitted in advance of class so that we can discuss your entries. You should aim for a couple of substantial paragraphs (c. 150-200 words) each week. Your field notes should be considered raw material which you may draw on for presentations and your final portfolio. Your cumulative, final journal will contribute, along with your site supervisor’s report, to your internship participation grade (25%).

2. Presentation: 10 minutes maximum per student (50%)

As well as writing about your chosen activities, you will have the opportunity to present on your experience to your peers. You will be asked, either singly or in groups, to showcase your internship placement and activities. These presentations are intended as a springboard for discussion. Your presentation should include, but is not limited to:

 a summary of your placement and the field in which it sits as well as its wider social, cultural and political context in the UK

 the work done by you and your organization during the semester

 an examination of one course theme as it relates to your workplace experience, drawing on relevant observations, course reading and wider research.

Student presentations will be assessed by how well you apply insights and contextual ideas from the course as well as the following criteria:

 Preparation and organisation

 Quality of content and analysis

 Quality of delivery, including timing

 Ability to generate effective discussion and class questions

An individual grade will be assigned to each presenter. Each student should speak for no more than 10 minutes. Please note that this time limit will be strictly enforced.

Selected presentations may be chosen as participants in the Internship Fair which will take place in the final week of the semester, where you will have the opportunity to represent your activities and organisation to your peers and invited guests.

Please note presentations will be scheduled for weeks 5,7 and 9. The timetable will be uploaded to your google docs folder in week 2.

3. Class Participation (25%)

In each seminar class you will be expected to summarise your research findings, and compare and contrast your experiences with your peers. You are expected to participate actively and critically in class discussions, and the participation portion of the class will be graded accordingly. We trust there will be a supportive and friendly atmosphere.

Class & online forum discussion will be assessed according to the following guidelines:

Program and Instructor Policies

The faculty expects from its students a high level of responsibility and academic honesty. Because the value of an academic course depends upon the absolute integrity of the work done by the student, it is imperative that a student demonstrates a high standard of individual honour in his or her scholastic work and online class behaviour.
