Staff Review and Development: COVID-19 Voluntary Impact Assessment 

The University recognises that COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the HEI sector and many staff will have faced difficulties in carrying out their usual duties, preventing them from progressing as usual during probation. Therefore we welcome a voluntary statement detailing the impact of COVID-19 during probation. 

This voluntary statement, to be provided by the employee by completing a COVID-19 voluntary impact assessment form, which can be accessed here, will be taken into account when evaluating achievements over the review period.  The member of staff may include reference to personal matters which have affected their work if they wish, however there is no requirement to do so, nor are they required to disclose if they have been furloughed.

Institutions will be expected to recognise the efforts made by staff to continue to fulfil their duties whilst adapting to new ways of working during lockdown. Guidance on reviewing and applying the content of the statement will be available shortly.
