Welcome to the bcda Induction Pack
The induction workbook and guidance documents have been written to assist care staff and managers in carrying out their duties and is meant to complement the new Skills for Care Common Induction Standards.
The induction workbook and guidance were designed to support an Induction Training the Trainer programme that was commissioned by bcda and delivered by Bordesley Institute, to managers and staff in supervisory roles, responsible for the induction of new staff. Birmingham Care Development Agency promotes and supports qualifications and career progression within the social care sector. bcda is dedicated to supporting workforce development within the independent, voluntary and private sector in Birmingham.
The social care sector faces many challenges, particularly, in relation to up skilling the workforce to meet the requirements of registration as directed by the Department of Health and through legislation, such as, the Care Standards Act 2000. Providing a high quality induction programme to all new care workers is just the first step in meeting the needs of staff and people who use the services and their carers.
The Induction Workbook files are listed below and can be to be downloaded from this webpage. Please note the guidance notes, workbook and six induction standards are as separate pdf files so will need to be downloaded separately.
