First read “about us”.
work-related-learning.org is a search engine of unpaid “job offers”, defined "work related learning" (experiences) as they are legally part of their curricular internships/traineeships, that is they practically count as school hours.
Foreign students wanting to improve their language and working skills, and knowledge in general, will have to opportunity to experience the UK without paying absurd amount of money, by working.
No money is involved, students may not pay or be paid for the work experience, as it is against Italian laws (based on European directives).
The founding principle is to allow to Student Guest to get some work experience, here no doubt of their choice, to practice and improve thier language skills, strengthen the potential learned with his or her studies and add fluency, something Student Guests don’t get in their own countries. Nevertheless through improving work, marketing, communication skills, cultural knowledge or simply personal general improvement.
They finally have the chance to do it surrounded by natives, not in a crowded class with some homey, not in a simulation, but in the real life, by passionate locals.
You can also make personal requests ( i.e. duties, rules, request references of even a video job interview) , with all the transparency, the information provided by the old students and Work tutors feedback.

Yes, we make a ground control of all the information inserted in the profiles, but in any case we may, in accordance with the law, send our inspectors to verify in person, or under request and people involved too, as for example tutors of high schools who are responsible and paid for, may do DBS checks according to regulations. In any case you would see the verification level achieved by each.
The internal messaging system allows contact before confirmation to get more information.
Cherry on top: the system is based on an agency net, every Student has an agent, a person, that assists them in creating their account and also those listing and will test and evaluate Users listing in person.
School Tutors are paid by the state to organise work related learning experiences.
The reason they can afford to do it in England is thanks to the founder of this site, Dr. Avanzi Matthew, who in turn makes a profit on organising the Student’s journeys, accommodation and extra services, typically paid for by the parents.
Work Tutors do it for free, well, in exchange of unpaid work.
