Green Light Induction Programme – what to expect
Green Light provides a structured induction programme to all new starters. At present, this is a blend of virtual and workplace learning over the first three weeks of employment. A variety of interesting topics are covered by experts in their field. By the end of your induction, we’d expect you to have a good understanding of the company culture, our aims, and the needs of people Green Light supports. You should have an awareness of the expectations of your new role, and how to be an effective team player. We’d expect you to see positive relationships starting to form between you and your new manager and colleagues, and with the people you and your team support together. During the induction, you’ll meet fellow inductees, as well as long standing Green Light team members, all with valuable experience to share. By the end of your induction you should have a good grasp of company policies and procedures (or at least know where they are!) and how you can access any additional help or support needed to do your job well. You should end your induction feeling welcome, prepared and excited to support our mission ‘empowering people to lead a lifestyle they’re proud of’
Successful applicants join sessions scheduled Monday to Friday between 0900 to 1700 working hours with a lunch break between 1200 – 1300. Week 1 sessions are home-based virtual sessions using Google Meet accessed through a company email account which is created for you.

Over the course of the induction there will be regular ‘check-ins’ with session hosts and trainers as well as opportunities for inductees to discuss their learning and interact and engage with one another.
Week 2 is your introduction and welcome to the workplace, usually one of our Residential Care Homes. This week you can expect:
During Week 3 your working time is allocated 0900- 1700 to focus on completing the Care Certificate. This is an agreed set of standards that define the knowledge, skills and behaviours expected of specific job roles in the health and social care sector. The Care Certificate was developed jointly by Skills for Care, Health Education England and Skills for Health and is made up of 15 minimum standards covered if you are ‘new to care’.
The Care Certificate is completed on this e-learning platform comprising 24 modules
