Summer Projects Submission Form 2019

Summer Projects - Provider expectations

We have set the expectations below to ensure we offer a fair process to all project providers and interns. Please read points carefully, checking the box at the end of the page to confirm you agree.

  • Please adhere to timelines. This includes the recruitment and selection period:
    • Make sure that all interviews are conducted outside of school hours either in the evening or during school half term (27 May to 31 May). Applicants located outside of your local area should have the option to be interviewed via phone or Skype if the interview is outside of half-term. We recommend that you include interview dates and locations in your project advert.
    • All those not shortlisted for interview must be informed by Friday 10 May, and those unsuccessful at interview by Friday 7 June.
  • Respond to all applicant questions. Any questions asked by a candidate should be answered in a timely manner, this is also an expectation for applicants.
  • Only make offers during the offer period (3 to 4 June). The dates have been set to ensure a fair process for all. Candidates have been told not to accept or decline offers before this period and will give final answers by 7 June. Please inform both successful and unsuccessful candidates within this period. This can be either by email or phone call.
  • Provide interns with initial induction as well as necessary training and ongoing support throughout their project.
  • Recognise that this is a development opportunity for participants and ambassadors to become better leaders, gain new skills and potentially experience a different work environment.
  • Treat interns fairly and in accordance with employment law.
  • Make any promised payment within two weeks of project completion date.
  • Honour a reference if requested.
  • Provide feedback if requested.
  • By taking part in the Summer Project process your organisation is agreeing to provide us with the names of participants and ambassadors who:
    1. Apply for a project
    2. Are offered and accept a project
    3. Accept any job opportunity you may choose to offer them following the project
    This process will enable us to identify individuals who accept multiple, conflicting projects. Whilst this rarely happens, we work to avoid it so that you do not end up with an unfilled project.
