Customised Online Induction & Training

ADES are experts in developing interactive customised online induction and training modules for university residential sites and the wider university community. Currently ADES have developed online induction and training modules for 159 university residential sites in Australia and New Zealand, with approximately 80,000 students having used this platform in 2019.

Implementing online induction and training establishes cultural expectations, values and beliefs prior to students arriving. Students are required (in some instances contractually obligated) to complete specific topics, relating to their respective residential site and wider university community, prior to arriving and receiving their keys.

Furthermore, residential sites and university’s can roll out specific topics throughout the year, such as well-being topics prior to exams, to further reduce harm, promote values, beliefs and positively influence culture.
