The NWU’s induction programme for academics is an activity aimed at enhancing academic staff as teachers, as part of their academic professional development. Academic staff members begin their academic journey at the NWU by completing an online academic staff profile survey that will place the staff member in the programme tailored for either the novice academic or the experienced academic.

The induction programme for academics is envisaged for permanently appointed academic staff as well as any staff appointed to teach at the NWU. The induction programme for NWU academic staff members is compulsory and attached to the probation period as stipulated by People and Culture. New academics are required to complete an online component and attend a programme as well as create a portfolio of evidence. Induction is managed by academic developers from the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL).
