An Introduction to Induction, Supervision and Performance Development Plans / Appraisals for Supervisors

Course Code
Course Types

This course is for managers / supervisors who want to learn more about inducting new staff effectively. It is also for those who are currently supervising or new to supervising and would like to know more about how supervision works in practice.  It is an opportunity to increase your knowledge, skills and competence in delivering effective induction and supervision.

As the Care Certificate was introduced 7 years ago and is now embedded in Adult Social Care it will no longer be covered in the induction part of this course. Instead, general induction will be covered. 

For those of you who do the Care Certificate as part of your workplace induction, there are a number of documents attached that will provide support for you in inducting new staff, whether they are new to adult social care or have adult social care experience and / or a social care qualification. 

This course is delivered across two virtual teams sessions.  

Please note: - This course is for in-house providers and the independent voluntary sector only.

If you have Windows 10, you shouldn’t have any difficulties.
With Windows 7, you should use Teams on the web using the Chrome web browser on your laptop. Go to and log in with your usual council login details.
If you're using Citrix on a personal device, you should use the web version of Teams outside of Citrix, as using Teams directly within Citrix will give you limited access.
