Queen Mary’s Performance and Development Appraisal Scheme, applies to all members of staff except for those who have been appraised as part of the joint academic and clinical appraisal scheme, or who fall into the following categories:
- Clinical staff who require revalidation (the online Trust system should be used for this purpose)
- Individuals with honorary status
- Temporary staff (on contracts less than one year)
- Staff currently on probation (the probationary procedure will apply)
Although appraisal conversations should take place regularly throughout the year, an annual recording of those conversations normally take place from May through July.
This page links you with information to help you make the most of your appraisal conversations. The first part deals with how the appraisal conversation should be structured and the second part with recording on the e-system.
1. The basics of appraisal
Some useful guides:
Getting Started is a brief document summarising both the appraisal process and the e-system. This is the essential core introduction to both the appraisal process and the e-system with a series of group-specific messages – for example to Faculties on how to transition to the new system or how to incorporate other documentation.
For a full overview of the principles and practice of a positive appraisal conversation, please read the Guidelines which include example objectives and a dummy completed form. They are written for both appraisers and appraisees.
Training. New appraisers should use the CAPD’s online booking system to arrange their attendance on the updated appraisal training course, code AP008 (http://capd.qmul.ac.uk/bookings).
2. Recording the appraisal - the e-system
