This Internship Policy explains the Company’s approach to offering internships and work shadowing placements.
Work shadowing placements and internships are not precisely defined in law. This Internship Policy offers a working definition of both work shadowing placements and internships as it is important that employers are aware of their legal obligations towards people working for them under either arrangement.
Guidance notes, risk assessment forms for individuals undertaking work experience and employment contracts for interns can also be found elsewhere in Work Experience and Internships.
This Internship Policy includes definitions of work shadowing placements and internships and contains the following sections:
• Work shadowing
• Health and safety
