Induction toolkit

Plan and deliver a supportive and inclusive induction for new starters at all levels across all types of roles in adult social care.

Managers have a key role in ensuring new starters are inspired and understand how to put expected standards and behaviours into practice. You also have a role in noticing how staff are working during their induction period, identifying and challenging any behaviour that’s not in line with your expectations and supporting staff to succeed.

This toolkit will support you to offer a robust induction to fully support new starters and ensure you create the right first impression.

The checklists at each stage provide lists of activities to consider with signposts to resources and templates which you can tailor. It draws heavily on what providers across health and social care tell us works for them.
