Your induction

Our induction programme gives you a chance to better understand your role, how we work and what role different teams have in supporting our children and families. Throughout your induction you will be supported by your line manager who will have regular meetings and discussions with you so you can ask questions and gather the support and information you need. You will also be designated a buddy who will show you the ropes, introduce you to colleagues and answer those “I’m new” questions as many times as you need.
