Work Shadowing Programme For Members

02 July 2021      Cheryl Pick, Projects and Engagement Manager

Dear members

AUDE are pleased to announce a new work shadowing programme to enhance our member CPD offer. The programme was developed by the winning project team at AUDE's Summer School 2019 and is now avaialble as a core part of AUDE's CPD offer. 

It does rely on members to volunteer as a work shadow host  before other members can benefit from the support. Please read through the details below and consider registering:

Register as a work shadow host or find our more information >>                                       

AUDE will facilitate matching work shadow hosts or coaches with suitable participants. Huge thanks goes to the Summer School 2019 winning group who developed the work shadowing programme as part of their project.

Aims of the work shadowing programme
AUDE’s work shadowing programme allows members to develop their career through on-the-job learning. It allows an individual specifically from estates and FM in one institution to work alongside and gain experience of the role of another individual either within their own institution or from within one of the 186 member institutions of AUDE. It can benefit full time and part time members at any stage of their career. 

Expectations of host 

  • Provide the visitor/guest with a timetable for when the shadowing will take place
  • Agree a suitable time dependent on the visitor’s objectives and the service needs in the host area
  • Prepare an area for the visitor/guest to be placed
  • Ensure other colleagues are briefed about the shadowing experience
  • Provide time between sessions or prior to sessions for questions and feedback
  • Provide the visitor/guest with information on the team /department that the shadowing is taking place in
  • Provide appropriate notice and reasons if the shadowing activity has to be cancelled or changed in any way
  • Provide constructive feedback to the visitor/guest
  • Should ensure they discuss any disability requirements with visitor/guest in advance of the work shadowing activities, to ensure there is enough time to put adjustments such as PEEP, specialist equipment etc in place in order to maximise the benefits of the experience
