Course Ratings & Reviews
A lot of information, however I did feel all was valuable. It was nice to see how important our role played as part of Southwark's aspirations. It was nice to be able to meet the decision makers and ask them questions pertaining to my field of work. I thoroughly enjoyed the coach tour too.
Welcome to Southwark
Very interesting and informative.
It was good to get a more over-arching understanding of Southwark as a council and the coach tour was really good - with bonus poetry!
As a new member of staff it was great to get to know the views and vision of the council from those who run it. And a most refreshing and entertaining bus tour of the borough from the community cohesion team!
One of the best!
As induction days go, this is one of the best I have been on. Had some very interesting talks from people from the Senior Management Team, which is a great way to make new starters feel valued. The coach tour was the highlight of the day. Clearly a lot of though has gone into making the tour interesting, with both historical and present day facts being shared.
Welcome to Southwark
A valuable experience I really enjoyed this induction course. It was very informative and I particularly enjoyed listening to the Leader of the Council speak of his vision and the current areas of focus. I also enjoyed the coach tour in the afternoon and this has helped me to become familiar with the geography of the Borough. The commentary on the coach tour was also informative and extremely entertaining.
I enjoyed the induction. The trainer was friendly, welcoming and spoke slowly and clearly enough to be understood without being patronising. I would recommend this course to everyone (particularly if run by the same trainer) as it was a lot more interesting and useful than I expected it to be.
A great induction!
I enjoyed the induction since the very beginning until the end. All the people who gave talks were sensitive, emphatic, nice and clear about the things they were saying. It was useful and interesting to meet colleagues from all the different departments in Southwark. Amongst the highlights, its was fascinating listening to the Chief Exec. and see how passionate she is. Additionally, I loved the trip on the bus around Southwark. The person talking over the mic (the manager of civic engagement and social cohesion) was simply fantastic. Overall I had a wonderful day.
An interesting and informative day
Claire Stanhope was a very personable, knowledgeable and welcoming trainer. The talks by guest speakers and the CEO were interesting and passionate and the coach tour was an interesting addition! Michael and Suley from Community Cohesion did a fantastic job, were friendly, informative and entertaining! Great to have a corporate induction that didn't feel too much like a corporate induction! Unfortunately there were a few hitches with IT at the beginning of the day.
Very informative and welcoming
The induction was very informative and I enjoyed that we were able to meet the chief exec. This made me feel very valued as a Southwark employee which is a re-occurring theme throughout the borough and departments it seems. The Coach trip was extremely useful and fun as it gave me an insight into the different areas, cultures and identities of the various areas in Southwark. This was useful to my role as I will be doing a lot of visits within the community so it was helpful in terms of familiarising myself with the area. Overall a brilliant day. Also enjoyed the banter and poetry from our coach escort.
All About Southwark
This course is a good basis for anyone new to working at Southwark. You get an insight into the structure of the Council, a chance to talk to the Chief Executive (and usually the Leader of the Council), and hear from other officers from different departments about what they do. The bus tour of the borough in the afternoon is very interesting and a great idea if you're not familiar with the area. I certainly have a better feeling for the area and the Council now I've been on this induction.
Very informative. Great coach tour
