ELC and the church partner together to train and develop interns, ensuring that they gain both academic and practical ministry teaching during their time of study.
ELC provides the overall internship framework including guidelines for how the internship will progress, quality lecturers and lecture material, group forum discussions, assessments and student support. Block courses are also an integral part of this framework, providing a unique opportunity for interns to gather together to interact and encourage one another.
The church provides the practical side of learning through application, development of practical ministry and leadership skills, as well as opportunities for growth and development.
Churches grow when ministries thrive. Building great churches is the big picture and building great people fulfills that vision. ELC internship programmes help the local church develop the leadership potential already in the church.

The supervisor oversees the practical component of the internship programme which is agreed by the supervisor and intern at the beginning of the internship via a Position Description.
