Corporate induction

All new staff must complete corporate induction.

We recognise the importance of all new staff starting their employment in a positive and supportive environment. The induction process is an opportunity to welcome staff and deliver core information about the Trust, their departments and their own roles. This helps to ensure a healthy and safe workplace.

If you have retired from the Trust, then returned, or if you've changed payroll numbers for any reason, please inform the Corporate Induction team, including your old and new payroll numbers so they can ensure your training records are merged.

Corporate induction is completed online using Moodle our online training platform.

Colleagues are allotted seven and a half hours paid time to complete their online induction.

The aim is to introduce the Trust's vision of building healthier lives and the three core values:

  1. Kind
  2. Connected
  3. Bold

The corporate induction package includes initial mandatory training, including:

  • fire training
  • infection prevention and control
  • information governance
  • equality and diversity

The induction process may be managed over a number of weeks with corporate induction being followed by a local/departmental induction with your line manager. Clinical staff will also need to complete clinical induction.


If you're a new member of staff, you will be allocated a date for corporate induction, and this will be included in your unconditional offer letter.
