Induction programmes

Get your new joiners off to a flying start

For: Technical specialists and junior professionals

Level: Beginner to advanced

Time: 2 hours – 1 day (face-to-face or virtual courses)

When you hire new people, you want to get them off to the best possible start.

With a bespoke induction course, you can give them the knowledge, skills and resources they need to perform successfully from day one.

Your induction course will focus on your new joiners’ specific needs, for example:

  • Writing – communicating professionally and using your house style
  • Minute-taking or note-taking – producing accurate timely records of meetings
  • Presenting – performing well in client meetings and presentations
  • Creativity – collaborating effectively and generating new ideas to deadlines
  • Reflection – setting their goals and intentions, and identifying the most effective working practices for their new role

Your course will be based on your organisation’s work, processes and templates.

It will incorporate your values so your new joiners understand how you want them to work as well as what you want them to do.

Your new joiners will be able to:

  • Contribute quickly to your organisation rather than slowly learning on the job
  • Reduce their demands on managers and colleagues to explain how things work
  • See that you support them and give them what they need to do their jobs well

Your course will be tailored to your new joiners’ specific needs, for example:
