Event description


As a staff appraiser you have additional responsibilities in supporting colleagues who may be experiencing difficulties and in making recommendations for pay progression for all teachers on all pay ranges. If you are conducting appraisal and are looking to build your skills around holding staff to account, this interactive course provides you with the chance to practise your skills and gain confidence in handling difficult conversations effectively and objectively.

During this course you will:

  • consider how through appraisal you may need to lead a difficult conversation with an appraisee
  • consider approaches to building positive working relationships and holding appraises to account
  • clarify the importance of making expectations explicit
  • consider the importance of emotional intelligence
  • consider how to develop greater assertiveness in appropriate/relevant situations
  • explore how to prepare for the difficult conversation
  • practise in a supportive group how to hold a difficult conversation
  • evaluate your current level of expertise, analyse your strengths and areas for further development
  • produce an action plan

Facilitator: Dr Chris Greenland
