From April 13 to 18, I was in internship in the Medico-Social institute in Saint Joseph. I’d like to become a psychologist so this job is related to my future career. I’ve chosen to experience this job because I like helping people in difficulty. I spent these days in a class of children in need aged between 6 and 12. My internship tutor, Brice who is a specialized educator, showed me how he works with children. His job consists in helping children in everyday life and teach them how to live in society. That’s why he organizes many activities such as cooking workshops, theater, games etc…
To become a specialized educator you must get a high school degree and a Certificate of Suitability for the Medico-Psychological Help functions along with a five-year training in the corresponding employment.
Even though I like this job as I like helping people it’s difficult because some children are disturbing but we’re here to help them. The professional world is hard but when you do what you like that is fantastic.
