Induction training for GAP and graduate assistants 


Date: October 11, 2017


Why you should attend New gap students and graduate assistants will be integrated into the heart of the boarding provision in a supervisory role very soon after leaving the student body of their high school education. This seminar will focus heavily on the expectations of the schools they are working in and offer strategies and tools to manage this transition from pupil to member of staff effectively. The day will explore boundaries and expectations through case studies and practical exercises.
