What is the EAA Internship Program?
The EAA internship program is a progressive one of a kind model, designed for students to maximise their current placement opportunities at registered EAA organisations. The Internship program comprises a compulsory 8 week learning module designed by EAA educators including theoretical and practical based components. Students will be asked to complete set tasks through the duration of the internship which will be assessed by their mentor coach who will give feedback where necessary. All students will be required to sit the EAA student exam which will take place before and after the internship commences and closes. As part of the progressive development program, only students who pass the EAA student exam will be given EAA student accreditation.
Throughout the internship, students will be challenged to think critically, showcase their coaching ability and assist their mentor coach through a range of day to day tasks and potentially complex situations. All coaches are aware that all EAA interns have applied for the EAA internship with the desire to improve their coaching ability, programming capabilities, quick thinking/ initiative, anatomical assessment skills, attention to detail, queuing & demonstrating and personable skills. These skills will be learnt in every internship with the ownership put on the students to develop themselves and take advantage of every opportunity.
