Your Induc­tion

Not­ting­ham Col­lege believes in chang­ing lives through excel­lence in edu­ca­tion and employment.

We are ambi­tious for our city and are com­mit­ted to cre­at­ing a high qual­i­ty and dis­tinc­tive bea­con for edu­ca­tion and train­ing, not just for the 30,000 or so stu­dents and cus­tomers of the col­lege, but for our staff too.

In join­ing us at Not­ting­ham Col­lege you are join­ing us on a jour­ney and your skills and tal­ents, cou­pled with your com­mit­ment and pas­sion to deliv­er a tru­ly out­stand­ing ser­vice, will be instru­men­tal in set­ting us apart from oth­er col­leges and edu­ca­tion­al institutions.

When you join we are com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing you with a seam­less tran­si­tion into col­lege life. We are com­mit­ted to ensur­ing all new col­leagues receive a sup­port­ive induc­tion expe­ri­ence start­ing with pre-employ­ment on-board­ing, ori­en­ta­tion and suc­cess­ful team integration.

On your first day, your man­ag­er will dis­cuss your induc­tion pro­gramme with you and you will receive a handy pass­port book­let which will become the go-to doc­u­ment to help you set­tle into your new role. Your offer of employ­ment let­ter will include the date of our Warm Wel­come to Not­ting­ham Col­lege’ event, an essen­tial ele­ment of your pro­ba­tion and an oppor­tu­ni­ty to meet oth­er new col­leagues. At your two-month pro­ba­tion­ary review, you and your man­ag­er will be able to use your pass­port book­let to feel assured all ele­ments have been covered.

Our pass­port fol­lows the fol­low­ing stages:

1. Get­ting ready to join Not­ting­ham College

You’ll be invit­ed to a meet­ing with our HR team to which you’ll need to bring some impor­tant doc­u­men­ta­tion such as your proof of your right to work in the UK and any cer­tifi­cates of aca­d­e­m­ic and pro­fes­sion­al qualifications.

We will ask you to com­plete a short occu­pa­tion­al health ques­tion­naire and com­plete a full DBS (Dis­clo­sure and Bar­ring Ser­vice) check. You’ll also com­plete some vital online safe­guard­ing train­ing to help ease you into a col­lege environment.

Final­ly we’ll dis­cuss pay and our pen­sions infor­ma­tion with you and any infor­ma­tion relat­ed to trav­el­ling to and from work and around our campuses.

2. Wel­come to Not­ting­ham College

Here you will cov­er every­thing you can expect on your first day includ­ing access to IT sys­tems, office and cam­pus ori­en­ta­tion, key health and safe­ty process­es and pro­ce­dures and our manda­to­ry train­ing requirements.

3. Set­tling in

Here we’ll help you set­tle in by intro­duc­ing you to key col­leagues with­in and out­side of your team. We’ll show you how to cre­ate your staff pro­file and we’ll help you to set up your work­sta­tion to ensure it is opti­mum and your work­ing envi­ron­ment is con­ducive to effec­tive and safe working.

We’ll talk more about your pro­ba­tion­ary peri­od and about the staff devel­op­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties avail­able to you.

4. Employ­ee ben­e­fits

We will also intro­duce you to resources that will help you to com­ply with impor­tant leg­is­la­tion such as GDPR.

From here we will take your lead. Let us know what else you need to help you becom­ing an active mem­ber of our col­lege com­mu­ni­ty and we will do what we can to ensure you can ful­fil your poten­tial as a teacher, mem­ber of our pro­fes­sion­al ser­vices or a manager.
