Would you like to host an ITHQ intern at your company? Here’s what you need to know:
All ITHQ programs use a work-study format including internships/co-ops with companies in Québec, elsewhere in Canada or abroad.
Most are paid positions, involving a minimum of 390 hours over a minimum of 12 weeks, depending on the program.
Students are free to choose the company where they will undertake this practical training, but they must carry out the duties assigned to them.
Once you have offered an internship to a student, a hiring letter and an internship agreement form will be drafted. The internship agreement form must be signed by your company and returned to the ITHQ at least 2 weeks before the internship begins.
All internships/co-ops are evaluated by both the supervisor of the host company and by the ITHQ Internships Department staff. Students must be evaluated twice during their internship: once at the 200-hour mark and a second time one week prior to the end of the internship. The evaluation must be done by the student’s supervisor. The ITHQ Internship Department will provide you with the two different evaluation forms.
The students will need accommodation for the entire duration of their internship.
For unpaid international internships, all of our students have liability insurance with the ITHQ during working hours.
