To support the development and training of staff and officers in students’ unions, Endsleigh has introduced a series of ‘How to’ Guides or kits which can be used by you (staff and officers) and your union.
The guides have been produced as video interviews and made available to all unions. Each guide is supported by training manuals and, where applicable, re-usable templates to help guide staff and officers through the areas they wish to gain some insight into.
This guide has been written by a Senior Learning and Development Advisor with more than 15 years’ experience in the field of Learning and Development.
If you are responsible for planning, designing or delivering training, this guide will provide you with hints and tips that you might want to use to help you package a successful induction plan for your officers, volunteers and staff. Likewise, if you do not normally produce induction plans for new staff, this guide will provide you with the framework to get started.
In this guide, we introduce you to the way we approach induction plans at Endsleigh to ensure that our people are settled in quickly and successfully and are able to perform their responsibilities to the highest standard. We want to help you make it easy for your officers, student volunteers and staff to improve their skills, add value and properly represent your members.
This guide covers the following important elements of induction planning and training:
- Why have an induction plan?
- The induction plan content
- The process of learning
- How people learn
- Learning preferences
- The Cone of Learning
- Evaluating your training plan
This guide is for use by students’ unions, guilds, associations and councils and is aimed at delivering induction to new students’ union staff and officers. It not only includes information about how to put an induction plan together, it also explores the theory of learning and learning preferences. This theory provides the foundation for the induction plan, ensuring that it isn’t just about ‘what’ your new staff member or officer needs to learn, but also about ‘how’ they learn.
