  • Performance and Development Reviews (PDRs) for Reviewers

Line managers and those conducting PDRs in Schools must complete training on conducting annual performance and development reviews. Due to substantial differences between the PDR schemes for Support Staff, Academic, and Academic-Related staff, there are different training courses for these schemes:

PDR for Reviewers of Academic Staff - for those reviewing academic staff at Grades 6 to 10.

PDR for Reviewers of Academic-Related Staff - for those reviewing academic staff at Grades 6 to 10.

PDR for Reviewers of Support Staff- for those reviewing Support Staff at Bands 200 to 500.

Reviewers who carry out PDRs for both groups of staff will need to complete both training courses as the review processes, and outcomes, differ.
