This week we've had visits from our new intake of NQT's who are coming to work with us next term.
They can be divided into groups.
Those who realise they are joining the real world & those who think they are still students.
Some have read the dress code & dress accordingly, some have read it and think it doesn't apply to them (they are in for a shock).
Then there are those who haven't read the dress code, they are also in for a shock.
I'm running a training course for new and existing staff at the beginning of next term, it will be interesting to see who bothers to turn up, those who don't will struggle. We are having a new system installed over the holiday, most of the existing staff will find it confusing, so the newbies will definitely need to attend, at least half of them won't bother!
DD2 started her new job yesterday, along with 6 other people, she wasn't given any information about dress code & isn't customer facing. She wore black trousers, cream vest top and a thin black cardi.
Three people turned up in jeans and were sent straight home & have lost a shift along with the pay for that shift.
