From the HEE Quality Framework, the expectation for the quality of your induction is:
Learners receive an appropriate and timely induction into the learning environment.
NETS question: The formal induction or introduction I was given at the start of the placement (e.g. being shown around, being given a timetable, having my role explained to me).
HEE Quality teams will have a particular focus on induction as they carry out their quality assurance activities and interventions over the coming months, supporting placements to meet expected standards.
