The Welcome Event will give you an opportunity to get an overview of AfC, put context to where you work and understand the sources of support offered by the company. A selection of speakers from the senior leadership team, staff council, learning & development and colleagues from a variety of services. You will have an opportunity to find out what it is to work for AfC and network with other new and existing colleagues. The session will introduce you to the AfC values and how our practice model is being implemented across the company.

During Getting Started, you will be starting your professional development journey with AfC. Finding your way around new IT systems can be as intimidating as finding your way around new offices, you will be supported by the systems team to get set up and start exploring. All new starters will also start accessing the AfC learning platforms and mandatory e-learning. If your role includes management responsibility, you will be trained up on the management processes and procedures at Achieving for Children to enable you to start your new role with confidence.

Meet & Greet is an opportunity to reflect on your induction, hear from senior leadership and feedback on your experience so far.
