The internships, which accompany the pupils through their school time, are a fundamental part of the Waldorf schools and their pedagogy. On the one hand, insights are to be given in a specific topic and on the other, the competencies and knowledge of the students should be explored. For a certain period of time, they can then work in a company or organization and look over the professionals’ shoulders and gain insight into a possible future professional world or not.
