The regularization of the internships is done with the signature of a short term contract, that will allow the coverage by the School Insurance. The internship contract defines the duration of the internship, the start and end dates of the internship, the location and the work schedule, as well as the internship scholarship. The company must present a trainee plan with the identification of the supervisor and the definition of the objectives of the traineeship.
