What is your advice about? What to do on your first day

  1. Speak to everyone in your new department and introduce yourself. Find out about them-name, family etc.
  2. Find out who the admin staff and site staff are. Make a point of introducing yourself and chatting to them
  3. Get login details for the network, MIS system, upload resources you may need. Check your projector and PC work.
  4. Get copies of SOWs, set lists, student info and behaviour policy and nothing more- don’t overload yourself trying to get everything at once.
  5. Ask for a copy of ALL staff emails, names, roles.You’ll find people often say “email Tracey” and assume this knowledge is gained through osmosis. The list is vital.
