Who is the policy for?

This policy applies to all newly appointed Catch22 Multi Academies Trust staff including those employees who have joined Catch22 Multi Academies Trust as a result of a TUPE transfer and those who are promoted internally or move into a different role.

Policy statement

Catch22 Multi Academies Trust recognises the importance of providing a timely and effective induction for all new staff to ensure they feel welcomed, valued and they are integrated in their role and Catch22 Multi Academies Trust.
