Your first day

Welcome to your first day at Barnardo's!

We appreciate that there will be a lot of information for you to take in your first day so have provided you with bite-sized pieces of information to help you get started.

If you haven’t yet completed the ‘Before you start’ sections of the website you should go back and begin working through your induction content from there.

We will provide you with an Induction Learning Plan (ILP); this allows you to record your progress with your line manager throughout your induction period.

By the end of this section you will know:

  • how to use your Induction Learning Plan
  • where to get help
  • how to use your Barnardo's PC, its core software and some Barnardo’s IT systems
  • the main principles of the IT code of conduct
  • what Content Server is and where to get further training.

Your line manager will:

  • help you identify who your key contacts are
  • tell you more about your role and team
  • review your induction learning plan
  • ensure that your first day's health, safety and welfare at work needs are met
  • ensure that you are clear about your role and responsibilities towards safeguarding and protecting children
  • discuss with you Barnardo's Basis and Values and how they apply to your role
  • provide you with some information on your workplace; eg tour of premises and local procedures.
