The Three Strike System for ICT Ignite
The Three Strike System for ICT Ignite

Learners and employers must abide by the ICT Ignite Code of Conduct in order to successfully continue participating in the program.

Updated over a week ago

What will happen if someone breaches the ICT Ignite Code of Conduct?

Each breach of the code of conduct as listed below is considered a strike. We believe in second chances. However, any individual who receives three “strikes” throughout their time will be removed from the program, and will not be able to participate in any future ICT Ignite project.

A breach of the terms and conditions may result in immediate removal from the ICT Ignite program.


Terms and Conditions

Learners

Criteria for getting a strike

How to avoid getting a strike

Ghosting/unresponsiveness

Regularly communicate!

Be sure to stay in touch throughout the project to fully understand the project scope and ensure the work is on track.

(Recommendation: respond to all communication within 72 hours.)

Lack of commitment/incomplete work

Once a learner has been accepted to a project, it is the responsibility of both the learner and the employer to stay in frequent contact. Any changes or delays in the project should be clearly communicated in advance.

Late submissions

ICT Ignite projects should be completed within the timelines set by the specific program. Projects should be submitted on time, or the learner and employer should reach out to the ICT Ignite team before the deadline in advance to request an extension.

Lying or falsely reporting work complete

Keep track of your working hours and the list of deliverables which has been agreed by the learner and the employer. You should use the work log on the Riipen platform.

Reference Riipen as an employer on your CV or LinkedIn profile.

.

See this guide of how to reference your project on your CV and LinkedIn profile. If you list Riipen as your employer for your ICT Ignite project and a recruitment office reaches out to Riipen to verify the validity of your CV, we will have to tell them you were not an employee of Riipen and this may nullify your application as invalid

Committing to more than 1 ICT Ignite employer project.

For ICT Ignite Plus and ICT Ignite Skills only - be mindful of the number of applications that you are submitting and make sure to cancel any pending applications when you’ve started on project

You should apply to up to 3 employer projects, and can only start 1.

Not providing feedback on project submission

By providing feedback, you are helping the learner build their Riipen profile, as well as expediting the payment process.

Taking on too many learners

Be mindful of the number of learners you are accepting to work on your projects.

For ICT Ignite Plus and ICT Ignite Skills only - you should accept 2-4 learners per project.

For ICT Ignite Cyber - you will be matched with a team of 5 learners per project.

You are required to provide a minimum of 5 hours of mentorship to each learner - please ensure that you can manage all of the learners you are accepting.

Letting applications expire

For ICT Ignite Plus and ICT Ignite Skills only - learner applications should be responded to in 5 business days.

As the employer, you are able to approve or deny learner applications. Taking this action on the platform will help learners know if they should apply to other projects. Letting them expire will result in a strike.

Not providing the minimum 5 hours of mentorship to each learner

Mentorship is an important component of the program and gives the learners the chance to grow and complete the tasks assigned.
