Central Induction Canvas Course & Termly Welcome Event.
Who it is suitable for
All new members of University staff, as soon as possible after joining. This is the ideal opportunity to gain a greater awareness of the University; its history, research, alumni, community engagement and plans for the future, in addition to an introduction to the numerous support services available to all employees.
This session builds from your local induction, which should take place in your first few weeks, and will reinforce your welcome to the University.
What you will be able to do after the session
You will have a better view of how your role contributes to the success of the University and will have developed knowledge that will build on and support relevant local induction activities.
From the 1st July 2020, the Central Induction will change to an online format accessible through Canvas.
The Induction is modular, which will allow you to work at your own pace and select the order in which you work through the content.
Starting in January 2021, a termly welcome event will also be introduced to supplement the Canvas resource, initially through a webinar.
So what’s distinctive?
A chance to see the aims and ‘big picture’ of the University and the way all parts of the organisation go about achieving these as well as the opportunity to consider how you might contribute to success.
How to book
If you are a new member of staff who has not been on the Central Induction you will receive a URL invite to the Canvas course to enable you to self enrol. If you do not receive an invite please contact POD.
