The following eligibility criteria must be met in order for GTI to sponsor.
Have established an office in the UK and to have been trading for at least 12 months.
Have policies and procedures in place to employ, pay and monitor an intern as part of a genuine internship programme.
Have existing staff in the business with experience to share with the intern as well as the capacity to train and develop them for the duration of the programme.
The primary purpose of the internship must be to provide a temporary period of work experience, rather than to satisfy a staffing requirement in the business.
If the intern was not there, then the employer should be able to operate without replacing them.
We will ask for a structured plan for the internship which explains the purpose of the programme, the learning objectives and describes how the employer intends to train and develop the intern for the full duration of the programme.
If you have any questions, or you are a UK employer that would like to register with us, then please get in touch to request the application form. Please email us your full company name and the anticipated start date of the internship to begin the process.
If you are an Intern, please note that we will first need to register your employer to use the scheme, so please ask your UK employer to get in touch with us directly.
