Annual Generic Training
Annual Staff General OrientationThe Annual General Staff Orientation is a high-level on-boarding session, where all new staff members have the opportunity to be introduced to the University of the Western Cape’s various portfolios. This serves as the foundation for their journey at our institution, to gain insights into our practices, processes and culture at UWC.
On-boarding/Monthly HR inductionStaff who move into a new role or department or faculty are able to participate in on-boarding or monthly HR induction training. Induction is very important in providing new employees with the basic information and skills that they require to perform their new job successfully, ensures effective integration of employees into UWC, and helps create a positive and supportive working environment. It also helps define performance expectations, maintain motivation and identify the training and development needs of the new staff member.
