Within the STDU programme there are number of specific events spaced throughout the year aimed at new staff in different groups.
You may have been in your new job for a time before the next available event but it is considered to be an essential part of your orientation into the University and you are strongly encouraged to attend. STDU will write and remind you of the next available event.
These central induction courses are only the early stage of the induction process and induction within departments will be ongoing throughout the first six months of employment.
