PRASA Internship Programme


PRASA internship programme provides students with critical practical experience.

While universities provide students with a solid foundation to enter the workplace, receiving practical on-the-job experience is just as valuable.

PRASA’s internship programme provides work experience and training to students and PRASA bursary holders to obtain their qualification and gain practical skills though on-the-job experience.

The objectives of the internship programme are to:

  • Ensure the availability of suitable qualified individuals for future PRASA business requirements.
  • Address the shortage of skills and build skills capacity in the company.
  • Support the National Skills Development Strategy.


Internships are advertised online, in the media and at tertiary institutions.

Applicants need to submit a certified copies of their identity document(ID), qualifications, along with their curriculum vitae(CV) and testimonials.

Once applicants begin their in-service training, a mentor is assigned to help them and evaluate their progress, performance and acquired skills.

PRASA is under no obligation to employ interns permanently after they complete their in-service training.

However, should a suitable opportunity arise, the company may consider the intern for permanent employment.

This is based on the intern’s skills and performance during the training period.
