Supervisor Responsibilities for the Internship Experience Student

Employers who choose to participate in the Internship Experience are asked to do the following to support a successful internship experience:

  • Employers agree with the intent and purposes of Work Experience Education and will sign a copy of the student’s Learning Contract (prior to the student enrolling in the course), which will include agreed upon job-oriented learning objectives. This includes providing necessary supervision, training, equipment, materials, and appropriate facilities at the worksites.

  • Coordinate and host a site visit:  Within 3 weeks of the student’s first day on your worksite, the Site Supervisor must coordinate and host a site visit and meeting with the college’s Faculty Mentor. The site visit and meeting are required to establish the relationship and communication between the college and the worksite, and to allow the college to verify the safety and appropriateness of the student’s working environment and the appropriateness of assigned internship tasks. Note:  For students serving remote internships, a virtual meeting with the Faculty Mentor is sufficient.

  • Sign student’s monthly time sheets

  • Complete the Internship Site Supervisor Evaluation: One week before the end of the school semester, the Internship Site Supervisor must complete an evaluation form to assess how well the student achieved the three learning outcomes (goals) that were defined on their individual Learning Contract, and submit it to Katie Ottoson at ksnyder9@occ.cccd.edu
