work experience/Fixed Term Contract employee

Hi all,

Does anyone know of a good resource which details what defines a work experience person and at what point they should be a paid employee? i.e., where someone wants work experience (happy for it be unpaid) but wants to work one day a week for the next 7 or 8 weeks - is this seen as work experience or fixed term contract employee?

any assistance on this is really appreciated.
