How to use the workbook

We like to keep things simple for you and your new employees that's why we've made our Common Induction workbook straightforward and simple to use.

The pack firstly welcomes the employee to social care explaining, in easy to understand terms, their role and responsibilities in the workplace and the responsibilities of their manager / employer.

We have then included a comprehensive guidance chapter for new workers detailing what Common Induction Standards are, the GSCC codes of practice and how they could further their knowledge and skills through continued professional development.

The employee then works through the handbook completing each question set which relates to the 8 standards, regularly presenting their work to the manager for assessment.

When completed the included Skills For Care Induction Certificate must be signed off by the manager and used as one of the first pieces of evidence for their continued professional development (CPD). The completed pack should be kept in the workplace both accessible to the staff member and used as evidence when required.

The CQC's Essential Standards of Quality and Safety highlight the importance and value of robust and extensive induction. They'll have to be confident that every new member of staff has been subject to a comprehensive induction process.

They have been developed to be achieved within a twelve week time frame in order to allow care workers to demonstrate the provision of high quality care and support.
