Course Outline:

The recruitment and retention of high-quality boarding staff remains a concern for many boarding leaders. Reviewing interview processes is a good starting point. Investing in professional development and encouraging self-awareness are also key to making boarding staff feel valued and therefore contribute to higher levels of retention.

In this session, Grant Muirhead from Whanganui Collegiate in New Zealand will share the model he has developed. The ACTIVE model was created as a way to address retention issues and has proven successful at the Collegiate. Join this session to consider new approaches to recruitment and retention.

Learning outcomes:

  • Consider what makes for high-quality boarding staff during the recruitment process.
  • Learn about ways to encourage reflective practice amongst your boarding team.
  • Gather ideas on how to improve staff retention.
