You agree to provide us with all relevant information concerning the Student who requires a Placement, which will include, but not be limited to, the type of work the Student will be able to do, location, and hours of work, together with any experience, training and qualifications that they have, which may be relevant. The students or you may complete this information directly through our software. Where the
Software is not used, we reserve the right to charge an additional fee for processing such. Where we find such information incorrect, we shall not be held liable for failing to provide the services.

We shall only supply one Placement per Student. Where the Placement is not accepted or not utilised, you shall remain liable for our fees.
5.2. We shall, with the business, administer risk management for the Business, including but not limited to their premises and the works to be completed on the Placement. We shall do this where we have been given reasonable notice and at least 10 working days before the Placement. Where we have yet to receive such notice, we cannot guarantee that risk management administration shall be completed before
the start of the Placement date. It is your responsibility to check that risk management is in place before the start date; if this still needs to be completed, the Student will not be able to begin their Placement, and their start date will be delayed to accommodate such. The Business is responsible for the health and safety of the Student whilst in Placement as per HSE guidance.
5.3. If the business has not engaged with us appropriately to assist with risk management, we will not be held responsible or liable for any delays regarding the student Placement.
5.4. Notwithstanding Clause 5.1, it is the Business’s responsibility to satisfy itself as to the suitability of Students and to take up any references provided by us and/or the Student before engaging them, and we cannot guarantee their acceptance.

6.3. The student shall not receive any payment for works completed during their Placement.
6.4. Where a Placement is terminated due to the student’s actions or inactions, we reserve the right to charge to provide a replacement Placement. It shall be your responsibility to ensure that the Student is prepared for their Placement and complies with all instructions and rules given to them by the Business.
6.5. Where PPE, associated clothing, or uniform is required for the Student, it shall be your responsibility to ensure that payment can be made for such. Where payment is made directly by the Student, we cannot recover any payments made by them for such.
6.6. Where the Placement is of significant length or is part of our P25 scheme, we may offer trial periods and review dates during the Placement to ensure that the Student and Business are satisfied. This shall be agreed upon, and you will be notified on a case-by-case basis. Details of such shall be available via our Software.
6.7. Where a Student is removed from a Placement for any reason, you may agree to an alternative Student who may undertake the Placement as an alternative.

6.13. If you wish to cancel the Contract with us after this MSA has been executed, you will not be entitled to a refund because the cost related to any underpinning technology and operations has already been expended.
