GLF are continuing to enhance and develop the induction process as we recognise that the first few months in a new role is challenging. Our induction is designed to provide an overview of the trust and also to ensure that the skills and knowledge that you need to fulfil your role are identified planned for.

A summary of the online Educare modules that are available for schools is available here. Educare is part of the Partnership fee for primary schools but secondary schools would have to purchase it as an additional option.

Educare Training for Staff

When setting up and assigning programmes to new members of staff, it is advisable to ask them to complete as many programmes as possible prior to their start date. This minimises their time away from work on commencement. The ‘Child Protection in Education’ and ‘Safeguarding Young People' (secondary only) programmes must be completed within the first week of joining. The Child Protection in Education Refresher programme needs to be assigned and completed annually.

The school business manager is responsible for assigning programmes to staff and for checking that they have been completed.
