Rather than being thrown in at the deep end without the proper knowledge required to do the job or the understanding of how the job fits in with the rest of the organisation .it is also serves as a first stage in the succession planning process in order to facilitate a smooth transition in the future should certain staff leave the organisation. Individuals (service users ) are central to the service delivery.
