An Induction to Boarding
An Induction to Boarding, written by experts at the Boarding Schools’ Association, is designed to underline and reinforce the crucial underpinning knowledge and skills that are so necessary to any role in boarding schools and the associated pastoral duties.

This three module course delivers three CPD hours and comprehensively covers:
- the legal framework
- safeguarding and child protection, and how they differ
- the National Minimum Boarding Standards
- how school policies, procedures and protocols work together to support you in your day-to-day boarding role
- how to work safely and effectively, including the skills all boarding staff need
