Process of Placements
Each student’s own responsibility to find an internship placement. In case of finding out placements by the students, they should inform it to the Internship Coordinator and a Placement Confirmation Form (PCF) (Appendix 02) which could be obtained from the Learning Management System (LMS) should be completed and handed over to the Internship Coordinator within one week, after commencing the training. This will help the Coordinator to maintain an updated knowledge about the placement process.
However, the Internship Coordinator also will help the students in finding placements for the training. In this process, the students will be asked to prepare their curriculum vitas which should be handed over to the Coordinator. These curriculum vitaes will be used by the Coordinator to help the students in finding placements in organizations. Once, such placements are found out by the Faculty, open interviews will be organized according to the preference of relevant organizations.
Supervision of the Internship
The entire supervision process will be conducted by Internship Coordinator and Supervisor of the respective companies.
The training will be supervised by a supervisor from the organization to which the students are assigned. Depending on the situation, probably the supervisor will be the immediate supervisor of the trainee in the training organization. The supervisor will continuously assess the performance of the interns while the training is going on. A Training Record Book will be issued for each student and the supervisor will supervise it by recording progress of the training fortnightly.
