E-Learning: How to Develop an Effective Induction


£30 + VAT per person

The purpose of an induction is to ensure that all new staff gain the confidence, skills and knowledge they need to begin performing effectively in the shortest time possible. It helps staff understand the aims of the organisation and the way in which their role contributes.

If a workers’ induction is unsatisfactory this can lead to a host of problems, for example, accidents, low job satisfaction, costly mistakes, unsatisfactory performance and high demands on managers.

This module has been developed to provide learners with the knowledge and skills required to manage an effective induction. On completion, learners will understand the different stages of an induction, and be able to design an induction checklist.

On completion of this course learners will be able to:

  • Describe the key outcomes of an effective induction
  • Identify the fundamental elements of an effective induction
  • Appreciate the roles of different people within the process
  • Design an induction checklist
  • Recognise the different stages in an induction
