Appraisal and feedback
Appraisal is at the heart of school development, it is the most powerful way to deliver your aims and values and enable your staff to grow and develop in their roles and responsibilities. This course explores how to design a bespoke system that will suit your school setting, applying a balance of rigor and accountability with professional development.
