Induction Programmes

All new staff and existing staff with a new role within the university will be welcomed and supported by our induction programme.

Our programmes include:

  • Local Induction

    Your local induction is a three-way joint process between your Line Manager, your Induction Colleague and you. Guides have been developed to enable an effective local induction and may be accessed via the Local Induction Guidance Links at the bottom of the page.

    Central to the process is a comprehensive, interactive local induction checklist designed to provide the required assurance that an effective local induction has been facilitated in a timely manner for all new staff and existing staff taking on a new role within the university.

    Who should have a local induction?

    • New temporary, part-time and full-time staff
    • Staff redeployed within the University
    • Staff taking on a new role within the University

    Benefits of a good local induction

    As a member of staff either new to the University or with a new role you are supported to:

    • become familiar with and settle into your new environment
    • understand your role, responsibilities and performance expectations
    • have access to the resources you need to perform effectively in your new role
