To assist institutions with the entering of probation outcomes directly onto CHRIS.

There are three possible outcomes:

  1. Probation completed satisfactorily.
  2. Probation extended.
  3. Appointment terminated (you should process the employee as a leaver on CHRIS at the same time).

Who to contact


Departmental contacts should update the CHRIS probation records for all staff, including established academics. However, please note that the minutes of Appointments Committees confirming successful completion of probation for established academics should be forwarded to your HR School Team.
