Relationship between learning goals and assessment
The overall and individual learning objectives of the internship should be addressed during internship meetings and in the internship report. To determine the final grade for the internship the supervisor assesses the trainee’s work performance (e. g. participation in and contribution to meetings; student evaluations) and learning progress (reflected in internship activities and in the internship report).
The ‘Intervention Psychology Internship Program’ is unique compared to other internships, because of the:
•        Autonomy in providing training and experimenting with group interventions (an opportunity one rarely gets as a trainee at a training or consultancy company);
•        Intensive and substantive personal and technical training and supervision during the internship;
•        Intensive collaboration with other master students, who are also in the internship program: an important professional network for the future;
•        Focus on career orientation and the development of a career identity;
•        Access to the PION-network (Psychologists and Interventions in Organizations Network;, a professional network of ex-trainees of the ‘Intervention Psychology Internship Program’;
•        Access to the EFPSA network (European Federation of Psychology Students’ Association;, a professional network of (student) training psychologists. 
The ‘Intervention Psychology Internship Program’ has proven to provide master students with good employment prospects in the area of skills training, coaching, consultancy, teaching, human resource development, management traineeships in organizations.
The ‘Intervention Psychology Internship Program’ is accessible to approximately twelve master students, who are enrolled in the master ‘Social, Health and Organizational Psychology’. The internship program consists of:
