Induction is a planned process designed to introduce new members of staff to an organisation as quickly as possible. The induction process should allow new staff to learn about the structure, culture, policies and rules of the organisation. It should also help them to settle in and find their way around.

For qualified early years teaching staff, statutory rules for induction apply for Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) in England and Wales and for probationer (first year) teachers in Scotland.

Induction is also a key element in health and safety, ensuring that new employees are consistently provided with the most important information pertinent to their jobs, including safety information.

This topic looks at how induction should be set up and what should be included.
