Hosting an Intern

What does the supervisor's role include?

  • Orientation session, advising the student of your organisation’s OH&S requirements and discussing your workplace policies;

  • Informing other employees about the student, and the reason and purpose of the activity;

  • Providing constructive, ongoing performance feedback to the student throughout the activity;

  • Contacting the student’s course co-ordinator if any issues involving the student arise;

  • Participating in ad-hoc student evaluations and feedback, as deemed appropriate by you or as requested by the student.  There is typically no formal evaluation required from RMIT.

These sample checklists may provide helpful tips for preparing for a placement and inducting your intern:
