Supporting Starters is the complementary book for managers and replaces The First 12 Weeks and Beyond. As well as general guidance on how to deliver good induction programmes, it gives the same suggested learning activities and tips and assessment questions or tasks as the worker's Starting Out book. But in addition it gives extensive manager's notes against each standard, as a guide to the level and scope of the learning that is expected. It is noted, however, that managers are responsible for adjusting the content of induction training to suit the needs of particular workers in particular roles.
Recognising that employers have a business interest in maximising the benefit of their investment in staff development, Supporting Starters gives detailed information about which induction standards outcomes match the assessment criteria of the new health and social care diplomas at levels 2 and 3. If workers going on to qualifications can avoid having to 're-learn' topics that they have already covered in sufficient depth, their employers can benefit from not having to purchase the same training again.
Supporting Starters also suggests how to integrate a range of other Skills for Care guides for employers into inducting staff, covering topics such as recruitment and retention, continuing professional development and workforce planning.
Supporting Starters can be ordered for £19.50 including P&P.
