ENGLISH EVALUATION TEST 9TH Form

I.
Read the following text.
TEMPORARY WORK
There are few established organisations dealing specifically with temporary work in Britain. You
are advised to check carefully any details relating to your employment, particularly rates of pay and
insurance. Employment agencies are prohibited from demanding a fee from any worker for finding or
seeking to find him or her employment. Please do not forget that you will also need to find
accommodation unless you have applied for a catering job.
If you come from an E.U. country, you do not need a work permit to take up employment in this
country. Nationals of other countries must have such a permit, and may be refused entry to Britain if they
cannot produce one at the port of entry. However, for temporary employment on international voluntary
work-camps and farm camps as well as for au pair posts you do not require a work permit, but must bring
with you a letter of invitation from the camp or employer. This letter of invitation does not entitle you to
take paid work of any other kind during your visit.
International work-camps in the United Kingdom generally last for two or four weeks between
April and October, and some organisations arrange short camps around Christmas and Easter. Projects
may involve social work, manual work such as repairs, decorating, building of childrens playgrounds,
etc., or a combination of both. There are now a number of international nature conservation projects in
addition to the normal types of work-camp. Most international work-camps are organised on a non-profit
making basis.
