Develop internships for engaging and relevant education

Real world learning is best accomplished in the real world. Big Picture students intern with experts in their field of interest, completing authentic projects and gaining experience and exposure to how their interests intersect with the real world.

Learning Through Internships (LTI) is central to the Big Picture Learning approach and aims to make education more relevant and engaging. Students  build knowledge, understanding and skills in the context of authentic work. Big Picture students may spend up to two days a week as an intern. 

To support the spread of this educational approach, Big Picture Learning has created a toolkit complete with free resources and advice on how to develop meaningful internships within the local community.
