Induction Standards

Induction is the first piece of learning a worker will undertake when joining the social care sector or any new organisation. The common induction standards have been designed to provide a structured start for care workers in the first 12 weeks of employment. An induction training programme will be developed between yourself and your manager to meet the requirements for the Common Induction Standards.Support and guidance through a good induction can help to increase your motivation, commitment to the job and the quality of service provided. It can also assist you in understanding your job role within the organisation and increase those feelings of being an effective team member within a short period of time.

There are eight Common Induction Standards to complete during the induction each having a 'Main Area' which is made up from 'Outcomes', which state what indiviuals need to know about each area. The outcomes are workplace-specific requirements, this should be considered in relation to all workers new to an organisation, including those who have previously had induction training in other care settings.

The eight Common Induction Standards:

  • Standard 1 Role of the health and social care worker
  • Standard 2 Personal development
  • Standard 3 Communicate effectivly
  • Standard 4 Equality and inclusion
  • Standard 5 Principles for implementing duty of care
  • Standard 6 Principles of safeguarding in health and social care
  • Standard 7 Person-centred support
  • Standard 8 Health and safety in an adult social care setting

Support and guidance through a good induction can help to increase your motivation, commitment to the job and the quality of service provided. It can also assist you in understanding your job role within the organisation and increase those feelings of being an effective team member within a short period of time.Specific work books have been designed to enable care workers to achieve the induction standards in a way they can be comfortable with.The induction course can be delivered over 3 day’s covering all aspects of the induction or can be tailored to suit your organisations requirements.
