Approaches to performance reviews and appraisal for teachers and support staff are changing. Many schools, colleges and trusts have already shifted their appraisal practice away from annual reviews based on formal assessments and data-based evidence, towards a greater emphasis on continued professional learning and more frequent dialogue between staff and managers. This approach drives school improvement by supporting the building of capacity and enables staff to directly engage in and take control of their professional growth. This shift has seen benefits for individual well-being as well as supporting staff retention.
If you are thinking about how to shift your appraisal practice towards a more developmental approach, this Leading On webinar will outline the considerations for developing a new strategy.
The webinar will explore how to develop an appraisal strategy, taking into consideration the related policies, procedures and school processes as well as offering a model timeline for the transition.
