The Ministry of Public Administrations, Justice and Security of the Government of the Canary Islands has signed two agreements with the Canary Islands public universities so that students can carry out external internships in dependencies and work centers of the Autonomous Community.
The purpose of these agreements is to provide students with a greater practical component to their academic training, as well as to acquire professional experience for their subsequent employment, the Ministry has informed in a press release.
The head of the department, Julio Pérez, has signed these collaboration agreements with the rector of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC), Rafael Robaina, and with the vice-rector for Students, Employability and Campus Guajara of the University of La Laguna (ULL), Gloria Lastenia Hernández.
The agreements include the carrying out of external curricular or extracurricular academic internships in the different areas of activity of the autonomous administration by undergraduate and master students.
The agreements signed have a duration of four years, renewable for another four. EFE
The relationship of the Administration with the students in internships will not be of a labor nature and the realization of the practices will not constitute a merit for access to the public function.
The Administration will not be able to fill any job with students in external internships, or establish a paid employment relationship, since it is a training activity.
