These terms and conditions set out expectations and responsibilities of the student, the participating businesses (host organization) and Christchurch Educated.
As a result of successful completion of the programme and best match of previous employment experience, skills, cultural perspective and field of study a student will be put forward to you as a candidate for an unpaid internship. This internship is part of an integrated learning arrangement for educational purposes only. The intention is for graduates to enter the workforce with the attributes that employers want and need. Christchurch Educated recognises the importance of real world experiences to complement academic learning, and wishes to facilitate opportunities that can help students confirm or discover their interests, develop the relevant skills, make important industry contacts, and contribute to the success of a business.
There is no commitment on the part of any party in association with this programme to enter into an employment relationship. The student will be a visitor at the host organization. In the course of the placement, the student may carry out tasks that are not otherwise done by paid employees, observe work practices and prepare a report for the host organisation. The student may be reimbursed for expenses, but has no expectation of reward. In the event that the student’s tasks include work that is for the economic benefit for the host organisation, it is agreed any such work will be unpaid voluntary work.
