Ethical and Effective Recruitment and Induction

One of the key roles of the manager is recruiting the right staff – and for academic managers this will usually mean recruiting effective teachers who fit well into the organisational culture. There are many stages to this process – all the way through from initially identifying an organisational need to providing appropriate orientation to the person hired.
In this interactive workshop we will look at some of the key – and perhaps most difficult – parts of this process:

  • Attracting the best teachers
  • Ensuring you have a non-discriminatory recruitment policy that works in practice
  • Obtaining the essential information from candidates at the application stage
  • Providing candidates with the necessary information about the job
  • Interviewing – both face to face and at a distance – ensuring that interview criteria, questions and tasks help you select the right candidates
  • Induction – providing staff with the best possible information about the post, the organisation and the professional support and resources available.

Participants can expect to challenge the way they currently conduct the recruitment and induction process and take away new ideas or practices to improve how their LTO operates in this area.
