Improving induction 

Date: May 08, 2018



Members of the SMT, Heads of Boarding and senior HsMs and HPs wishing to review and improve their staff induction programmes. 


Why should you attend?

An induction programme is an important process for bringing staff into an organisation. It provides an introduction to the working environment, to the culture, key systems and most significantly essential practices in a school. Unfortunately, not every induction programme is full effective and so staff can start in a new position, teaching and/or pastoral less than ready to take on the many diverse new responsibility and tasks.

This half day workshop will provide an opportunity to consider the key elements of successful induction, help you to review your current arrangements and share best practice in developing a bespoke programme for your key staff.
