The developmental approach to teacher appraisal

Many schools are revising their approach to performance management. Our research considers the changes that are happening and how professional learning is moving centre stage to teacher appraisal.

In our report, ‘The Emerging Revolution’, we examine the changing processes in performance management and teacher appraisal. Alongside a greater focus on professional learning, individual development is becoming the top priority in conversations about performance and, therefore, one of the most important drivers for school improvement.

A universal tool for appraisal and professional development in schools

All school staff – from teachers and support staff to executive leaders and school business leaders, as well as the operations team – can access their own personal portfolio in our secure online platform, giving everyone ownership of their professional development and progression.

Individual objectives can be aligned to departmental and strategic priorities of the organisation, promoting engagement and commitment.
