Target Group: Headteachers and Line Managers of Support Staff
Tutor: Atia Williams
Teacher appraisal is now embedded in schools but this is not always the case for all support staff. Support staff appraisals should be conducted as part of a cycle complimenting the performance management arrangements for teachers, so that shared learning objectives can be established.
Changing the way in which people are appraised has implications for how people self-evaluate, how fair and valid judgements about them are and, ultimately, how far they feel their employer values and recognises their contributions.
The aim of this session therefore is to help you to motivate, manage, support and develop support staff towards the delivery of key outcomes. By the end of the session you will have a better understanding of the mechanics of this process and your role within it and the relevance of objective setting for support staff.
