Steps for using the National Induction Framework

Welcome to the employers page of the National Induction Framework.

Below are a list of resources that you may find useful as an Employer that can help provide more information to support workers' inductions.

This section is currently in development with stakeholders within the sector, but in the meantime, please use the steps below to see how you can use the National Induction Framework to support workers' inductions.

  1. The Worker areas section contains all the area's of practice that a worker may be in. These sections are where workers can access a 'pathway' that helps take new workers through training materials to suppoer their career at the early stages. There are also options for role-specific training and career development, but these will be developed further as this framework gains more content for these areas.

  2. Below are employer resources that can help provide more resources to support you as an employer in inducting newer employees into your organisation. If you are a PA employer, there is also a direct link to the PA Employer Handbook below.
