The Local Induction Process

Joining a new organisation can be both interesting and challenging. It can take time to settle in and find your way around.  Local induction refers to the role specific induction process that takes place when an employee member joins the University.  This process equips the staff member with the necessary information to participate fully in their new role.

Your Manager or Head of School/Unit has responsibility for managing and coordinating local induction. The Induction Process is an important way of ensuring that the new staff member and the school/unit derive real benefit from their appointment. The aim is to enable the staff member to perform to their fullpotential as soon as possible.

A successful programme will involve a team approach and will give the new staff member the opportunity to meet their colleagues and to gain an understanding of the role of every member of the team.
