We have a number of casual workers employed at the school who are required to carry out induction training which involves completing a couple of safeguarding courses, material reading and a quiz! All in all it takes roughly 3 hours to complete. The casual workers tend to do this from home etc. There is some debate over whether they should be paid for this time. I personally think they should otherwise you’re treating them less favourably than a perm staff member who is being paid for it as they can complete during work hours.
I’m struggling to find anything that expresses that we should pay workers for induction training. does anyone have an opinion on this? Or know of where I can obtain this info ? I have a meeting next week with leadership so want to get my facts right!
