New Starts and Induction

This post cover the process of preparing for the arrival of New Starts, advising new starts and Induction.  New starts are staff and PG students, a separate process exists for Masters and UG students.

Preparation for arrival

The preparation for new starts policy (visible to existing staff only) lists the normal steps to be taken from the time that an advert is placed through until induction is complete.


The Information For New Starts pages are designed for sending to new starts in the run up to their arrival.


The induction check list provides the new start, their line manager and their buddy with a checklist of tasks designed to ensure a full induction.
