What is your advice about? What to do on your first day in a new job?

  1. Ask your Head of Department what your priorities are for your first teaching lesson/ day (depends on whether this is a training day).
  2. Construct seating plans (see 5 if possible, but randomise if not).
  3. Do not leave the first day without having got IT logins and such like.
  4. If your contract or pay is not sorted, do that on the first day.
  5. Find those who taught your classes before you and get advice.
