COVE will be responsible for recruiting, assessing and selecting interns from a range of interdisciplinary programs and post-secondary institutions.
Pre-deployment Training and Development: Prior to entry into any of the participating organizations, COVE will provide 35 hours of upfront training in workplace skills, health and safety, industry orientation, design-thinking, and basic consulting and project management strategies.
Project-Based Work Integrated Learning (WIL): Interns will be deployed to companies who have submitted project proposals, in interdisciplinary teams of 3-4 to engage in workplace-based projects. This model will provide opportunities for peer-to-peer learning, exposure to a variety of ocean-based industries/careers, and access to a wide network of industry mentors and connections.
Continuous Mentorship: Interns will receive ongoing work-place mentoring from an assigned senior mentor as well as weekly mentoring from a COVE manager. This will ensure strong alignment between the participating companies, the host (COVE) and facilitate project and individual success.
Competitive Wages: We don't believe you should sacrifice pay for a proper work experience. Our interns are paid at competitive wages within the ocean tech industry.
