International internships

Since starting our International Internship Programme 2009, we’ve offered placements to more than 50 international students from Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the United States, completing a range of different degrees in their home countries.

If you’re thinking about an international internship, why not choose a great organisation in the most beautiful country in the world?!

Are you looking for an internship where you can make a positive difference?

All our international interns complete the same New Zealand Qualifications Authority accredited induction training as our fulltime Community Support Workers.

This training includes health and safety, first aid and crisis prevention, as well as training in communicating with people with profound disabilities.

Your work rosters are structured collaboratively to ensure you achieve your learning objectives, and have time to fully experience and enjoy our beautiful country.

You’ll also have plenty of time with our other international student interns to share your experiences and build new friendships.

Our dedicated Student Intern Manager and Supervisor is available throughout your time with us, and provides regular workshops on topics relevant to your professional development, such as ethical dilemmas, behaviour management, opportunities and challenges, and community integration.

You’ll also have lots of on-the-job training and guidance from experienced staff, and can rely on house/site leaders and Service Coordinators for daily support while at work.

Spectrum works with White Cloud Internships to provide additional support throughout the length of your internship. You can visit their website here to find out more about their services:
