Insurance

The Career Mentor Scheme is not a work experience program - however, work experience may result from the mentor relationship and QUT insurance is able to cover the student if this eventuates. 
Insurance for this Scheme covers students undertaking site/office visits and unpaid work experience at their mentor’s place of work, or in a work setting organised through their QUT mentor. Work experience and/or site/office visits must be related to the student’s field of study and supervised either by their mentor or by someone appointed by their mentor.  It is strongly recommended that any work experience opportunity is discussed with the Career Mentor Scheme Coordinator, as it may be necessary to facilitate the placement via the Real World Placement Program.


QUT carries the following insurance policies that are relevant to student's activities within the Career Mentor Scheme.
