Annual Review

Annual Review is a yearly discussion that all staff have with their Line Manager or Reviewer. Its purpose is to support staff to realise their full potential by reviewing their progress against previous objectives, discussing future plans and development needs and setting objectives for the time until your next review.

Online Development Toolkit

An online resource which enables all staff, particularly those in leadership and management roles, to quickly find relevant information and practical advice to help them deal with different situations they may be facing in the workplace.

Financial Support for Development

Local areas have their own staff development budgets, and these can be accessed through discussion with your line manager following identification of learning needs through annual review, or in discussion with your Head of School/College/Support group if you are planning a group activity or intervention.
