Performance Management

The Staff Review and Development Scheme sets out the framework for appraisal of all staff and performance management, following approval of a Joint Report in May 2004 on proposals for revising arrangements. Full details of this Report and the subsequent Notice can be found in Reporter (see the links below). Documentation including an information sheet, a booklet answering frequently asked questions, and model forms are also available.

All institutions are expected to use the SRD framework as the basis for setting out appraisal arrangements covering all their staff. A copy of your institution's scheme can be obtained from your departmental administrator. Details of the Career Management Review process for researchers, which falls within the SRD framework, are also available.

Information on the joint University/NHS appraisal process for clinical academic staff (consultants) can be obtained from the Medical Director's website.

Further guidance is available from your HR Business Manager or HR Adviser. Advice on training is available from the Centre for Personal and Professional Development, which also runs scheduled appraisal courses.
