New good practice guides for induction and transition

A set of good practice guides has been developed for staff who support students during transitions through different stages of University life.

Induction and transition

A Leeds for Life Working Group on Induction and Transition has produced the guides which are now available to download

The guides contain student perspectives and highlight good practice in support at the following transitional stages:

  • to University for undergraduate and postgraduate students from the perspective of part-time, full-time, mature andinternational students
  • through undergraduate levels
  • into and returning from study abroad
  • into online distance learning programmes
  • out to the world of work

Andrea Jackson, group Chair and Pro Dean for Student Education in the Faculty of Environment, said: “I hope the guides will give new ideas to Schools as part of the evaluation and refresh of their current induction programme and the way in which they support students through transitional states, and that they will inspire everyone to at least consider something different.”

The Induction and Transition webpages can be found on the SES website.

The guides will be reviewed and updated annually. If you would like more information or would like to provide a case study for one of the guides, please email Dr Isobel Whitehouse.
