I have to admit, when I looked at the timetable and saw the first day of my induction was filled with tutorials on confidentiality policy, equality and diversity regulations, and fire safety training I let out a subtle groan. Having been employed before I have done all these things at least once already so there is nothing more I could learn right? Wrong.
While the confidentiality session was very familiar material, especially since I have done it to death very recently, the Freedom of Information Act material was new to me, as was much of the Equality and Diversity session since there have been so many legal changes over the past couple of years. And the fire safety…well nothing new there but I did get to blast a chair with CO2 which was fun 🙂
