Role of the Employer
An Employer is the individual within the firm, organization or practice who personally supervises and directs the Intern on a daily basis. The Employer should regularly assess the quality of the work performed and certify the Intern's documentation of work experience activity. Although the Employer is not responsible for documenting the Intern's activities, he or she should have a clear understanding of the objectives and experience requirements of the Internship Program and be familiar with the documentation procedures.
The Employer is expected to:
- offer the Intern the full range of responsibilities and opportunities afforded by the practice of Architecture and/or Interior Design;
- review and evaluate the Intern's experience and performance;
- provide detailed comments and recommendations on the Intern's Experience Summary Form or Quarterly Experience Record Sheet; and
- certify the Intern's experience relating to employment within the practice in the Canadian Experience Record Book (CERB).
