The induction of staff, either newly appointed or recently promoted, is a critical stage in their development.  By investing time and resources into this period, it is hoped that each member of staff will quickly become confident and competent in their new role. In this way, a high performance culture can be sustained, and the transition of staff from 'new' to 'experienced' is fully enabled and supported. It is acknowledged that induction is not a 'quick fix' but rather a phase in which a number of different positive development processes and resources can be accessed.
