Interns management policy
Interns  are an essential part of our successful enterprise. Most of them work directly with the partners and provide support at the local and national level. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and responsible interns can make a huge impact in retaining and encouraging more people to work with us and take ahead the development agenda.

Emphasis is on outstanding service over a significant period of time; the individuals are not employed by SchoolEducation.Com but work in a volunteer capacity. The minimum time involvement is normally one year, though there may be exceptional cases when a shorter period of service would be worthy of recognition, or where breaks in service could be taken into account. The judgement of successful internship is inevitably  subjective, but considerable involvement of an individual's over time to the undoubted benefit of a number of people, is the basic criterion. Evidence is also required of positive advancement of the our aims and philosophy. The person should have demonstrated superior efforts and initiatives during his or her period of involvement with us and is expected to have shown exceptional ability, reliability and results in one or more fields related to its operation.

India's ministry of human resources and development is trying to issue what is in effect an executive order, which would leapfrog a bill stuck in parliament since 2010, one casualty of a legislative logjam that has paralysed Indian policymaking over the last two years.

Despite scepticism from many institutions that India will be able to change its game with elections looming by next May, some foreign universities are keen to push ahead with campuses.

"A campus in India has always been our vision and that is our plan," said Guru Ghosh, the vice-president for outreach and international affairs at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, known as Virginia Tech.

It is due to launch a research centre near Chennai in spring 2014 and hopes to set up a campus within 3-5 years if the rules change, Ghosh said.

Under the proposed rules, non-profit foreign universities in the top 400 worldwide would be able to open campuses. The rules need a final sign-off from the law ministry, which will take up to three months, according to R.P. Sisodia, joint secretary for higher education at the Ministry of Human Resources and Development.
