On the first day of your induction, during the lunch break, we ask a number of organisations that provide staff benefits to staff at East Lancashire Hospitals Trust, to attend. We call this the Marketplace. This opportunity allows you to speak to a representative of the organisations and understand how they might be able to benefit you in your life whilst in employment with ELHT.

The Marketplace includes (but is not limited to) the following organisations:

  • Moneywise Credit Union
  • Simply Health
  • Staff Lottery
  • Tusker, Salary Sacrifice Car Leasing
  • Unison
  • Unite

Local Induction Process

The Trust expects the new starter to take responsibility for ensuring that the local induction (and checklist) is completed (in partnership with their line manager) during their first month of work, or as soon as possible i.e. on the first day/shift if a short-term temporary placement. Here is a brief guide to completing the checklist:

  • Print a blank Local Induction Checklist from the Learning Hub (log into your account and type 'Local induction - self-declaration' into the search box on the home page)
  • For Agency and Bank staff use the Temporary Staff Local Induction Checklist
  • Go through the checklist with the line manager (or nominated deputy)
  • Once both the new starter and the manager agree that all elements on the checklist have been adequately covered, both the new starter and manager should sign off and date each item on the checklist
  • A paper copy of the completed local induction checklist should be filed in the new starter's personal folder in the department
  • Finally, THE NEW STARTER should log into their Learning Hub account, type 'Local induction - self-declaration of completion' into the search box on the home page, and complete the Self-Declaration questions in order to register completion of their local induction checklist and for their compliance to be recorded

There is NO requirement to return a copy of the checklist to Education and Development Department

PLEASE NOTE:  The new starter's compliance will not be updated on the Learning Hub until the self-declaration has been successfully completed.  

Evidence of Prior Learning

If you have evidence of prior learning, please be aware that East Lancashire Hospitals Trust has aligned to the Core Skills Training Framework and can therefore only accept training provided by other Core Skills aligned organisations.

It would be helpful if possible if you could forward any previous learning/training prior to your attendance on day 1 to Alternatively, you may bring these today one of the induction programme and submit these for consideration.
