Internship programme in Ireland The use of English as the international language means of communication continues to grow and most people study English at some stage in their career. For some, classroom learning is not enough; it is also essential to be fully confident in the use of English in the workplace. To meet this need, the CEC Internship Programme is specially designed to enable you to combine learning English in an excellent language school with practical work experience.

There are two parts to an Internship Programme. The first is a full time English Course for a minimum of 4 weeks. The second is a period of work placement (internship) with a company or organisation specially chosen to match, as closely as possible, your profession or subject of study. We offer internships in a large number of workplaces covering a wide range of professions including:

Business Administration Hotel & Catering Retail
Computing Politics Sales
Economics Voluntary Organisations Secretarial & PA
Engineering & Technical Marketing & Advertising Tourism & Leisure
Finance & Accounting Media & Communications

During the English course at Cork English College we arrange accommodation for the student with one of our carefully selected families, residences or apartments.

  • Improve general English and work related language skills
  • Gain practical work experience in the chosen career
  • Gain confidence in the student’s ability to function in an English-speaking environment
  • Get to know Irish people both at work and socially
  • Enhance student’s career prospects by obtaining certificates that describe his/her English ability and his/her work experience
  • Make valuable contacts within the profession chosen
