Practical Placements at DIPF

At DIPF, internships and work experience placements are available to students. If you have such a request, please contact the person given in the project description or the secretariat of the department.

Practical placements for secondary school students

DIPF offers secondary school students an opportunity to gain a first work experience, and a vocational orientation, in a practical placement (max. 2 weeks). In this case, no vocational skills, knowledge or experience are required, but the students will merely gain a first experience regarding professional work. These practice placements are offered for the areas of libraries and IT.

Placement within vocational training course

DIPF offers apprentices from the area of information professions an experience beyond the realm covered by the company that trains them, i.e. trainees for information assistance and participants in in-company vocational education courses (max. 3 months).
These practice placements are located at the Information Center for Education and the Research Library for the History of Education (Berlin).

Practice placement within a study course

It is useful to supplement the theoretical education students receive at universities by practical placements that enable them to build bridges between theory and practice. A practical placement at DIPF (up to 6 months) allows students to efficiently prepare for their future professional life, by working on projects or in the daily routine: placements are open to students of pedagogy, sociology and psychology or students from the areas of information and communication science, documentation or library science.
Each year, the Information Center for Education offers one of the students from the Department for Information and Knowledge Management at Darmstadt University a practical placement within the framework of the vocational practice semester (BPS).

Please send your requests to the persons named in the project descriptions (project manager or secretary).
