Induction Skills Passport

WWL have shared with us their induction skills passport for all workers working at the trust to access. Please note this is a 'tool to enhance' not mandatory and would almost provide more equity between substantive and non-substantive staff. We recognise that just because people choose to work flexibly, they should still be privy to training of valuable skills to ensure the patient receives the best quality care.
