Induction training for GAP students and graduate assistants

September 13, 2018


Why should you attend?

New GAP students and graduate assistants will be integrated into the heart of boarding provision in a supervisory role very soon after leaving the student body of their own secondary or tertiary 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.

Programme outline:

  • Duty of Care and what the law requires
  • Relationships and communication with pupils
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Boundaries and expectations.
