> guidelines for interns including cooperation agreement, time schedules, training plans, logbook for recording intern activities, intern self-assessment form, internship report form;
> compliance with the national regulations related to student internships (if they exist).
You should interview a principal or other assigned staff at the VET institution to find out about the above mentioned points and check the relevant documentation. You can also observe or interview some interns at the workplace and interview business representatives to verify the information.
