Responsibilities for companies
Dedicated company coach
As internship company you should provide a dedicated company coach (i.e. a representative from the internship company). This is the person who gives help and guidance during a student's internship. Next to that, the company coach might be contacted by the supervisor assigned by the university. In the end, the company coach will need to fill out a brief evaluation form on the student's performance during their internship, which will be taken into account for the final evaluation by the supervisor.
Supporting learning environment
It's important that the students learn as much as possible during their internship. Therefore, students should have the opportunity to work on their assignment for the majority of the time, and are provided access to relevant stakeholders and information needed to come up with high quality recommendations. Next to that, the student together with the company (coach) need to work towards recommendations that can actually be (partly) implemented. Otherwise the student might face the risk of not passing the internship, resulting in not getting their credits.
