When I'm at work: Supported employee induction Trainer's guide


Sample induction checklist

A sample checklist

Below is a sample checklist of items that need to be covered during an induction process. You can use this one, or customise it to your workplace requirements.

Induction forms can be completed either as you go through the induction process with the new supported employee, or when you sit down with the employee at the end of the first day as a confirmation activity.

Have the employee fill out the copy of the checklist in the learner’s workbook to keep as a reference as well.
