1. e-Induction (e-learning)

This is the first part of the Induction Programme and is an electronic component, to be completed at home* before attending the face to-face-session using a computer or tablet with access to the internet. This part is called the ‘e-induction’ and will take approximately an hour to complete using a computer or tablet with access to the internet.  It does not need to be completed in one go – there is an option to pause, take a break, and then to pick up again where you left off.  You must complete the e-induction at least 24 hours before your face to face induction session. We will receive notification via email when you have completed it.

Click on the picture below to access the e-learning modules.

The modules are:

  • Information Governance
  • Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults
  • Security
  • Fraud
  • Moving and Handling
  • Safeguarding Children
  • Infection Control
  • Conflict resolution
  • Fire


*We have computers in the Voluntary Services office and elsewhere in the hospital if you would prefer to complete the e-induction on site. Your local library will also have computers connected to the internet available for you to use free of charge. If you have any questions or concerns regarding access to a suitable computer please contact us (details above).Welcome and introductions
