I am deputy at a busy nursery, we have just taken on a new member of staff the first for along time.
My manager just leaves everything to me, but ive never done an induction or had one myself so i'm not sure what i am meant to tell or show this new member of staff. been though heath and saftey showed her the policies and procedures introductions and about our setting. but what other things should i show her?

health and safety- fire procedure, evac point, what to do when it goes off e.g leave belongings take kids, anything that could cause a problem report, kitchen safety, chopping boards, cloths, buckets for different areas, eg toilets/kitchen.
safeguarding - what to do if suspect something, who to report to, what to say and what not to say to people, confidentiallity,
staff routine/kids routines, time scales for breaks lunch etc
who's who, whos incharge of what, who's senco, behaviour co-ordinator
planning, short and long term, focus and adult led activities, evaluationg, observations (every setting is different)
do's and donts expected by management - jewellry, social networking do's and donts,
anything they need to ask.....
hope this helps x

Many people think an indiction only involves the first week or in some cases the first morning, an induction should take several weeks even possibly months to complete fully. apart from all of the above it should include regular 1-1's and their first appraisal.
