INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME

Need an intern?

Thank you so much for your interest in hosting one of our students! Internships with industry partners, such as yourself, are an important part of the learning outcomes here at The Aleit Academy. We look forward to sharing this amazing journey with you, and thank you for playing a role in our students’ education.

We strongly believe that taking on an intern is mutually beneficial for both our student(s) and your company.

As you know, The Aleit Academy presents a Diploma course in Event Coordination and is situated on the beautiful Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West. This one-of-a-kind course is accredited by CATHSSETA (NQF level 5), and the completion of relevant internships is an integral course component for our students, and a requirement for successful course completion.

Our Full-time course is designed and developed to have a 50/50 ratio of theory and practical. Each student is required to complete 14 Learner Programmes and 1900 practical hours to successfully complete their diploma. Approximately 1000 of the 1900 hours required will be completed through external placements during their second- and third year of studies.

This ratio gives our students the opportunity to receive hands-on training in all the different fields of the Event and Hospitality industry, as well as learn about the phases and elements of Event Coordination.
