The start of a school term can be an exciting time for staff members. It can also be a busy time with everyone needing a proper induction into the ways of the organisation. Staff members and contractors may also join throughout the year and have to go through the same induction process before they can be admitted to site.
The induction is the first and possibly most important stage in each person’s relationship with the establishment and the aim of each one is to ensure that a person is familiar with how the establishment works, knows what is expected of them and can settle in quickly. For an educational establishment, safety is also particularly important and that extends not only to a person’s conduct but also to the way the induction is conducted. In today’s Coronavirus-aware environment, this means conducting a contactless inductions when possible so that risks are reduced to the minimum.
A company induction management can take a long time to process and a lot of resources to set up. That’s particularly true in an educational setting where teachers, other staff members and contractors require different on boarding information which requires separate inductions for each role. A traditional induction also involves a lot of paper, with inductees generally being presented with an induction pack, and probably too much direct contact in these risk-averse times.
A contactless induction can resolve many of these problems because:
Each induction will be tailored to the needs of the role and will typically include:
The completion of the induction will be automatically logged on the person’s record with all the information and documentation they have provided. The process will help the inductee to understand the establishment’s objective and culture, will improve staff retention and will enable you to evaluate the success of the programme through feedback and to make improvements.
Within education, the safeguarding of children and older students is of primary importance and it is essential that a safe environment is created.
