Staff Review

The Staff Review and Development Scheme applies to all staff groups [with the exception of Contract Research Staff where separate arrangements exist (career management)]; namely academic, academic-related and support staff (Technicians, Administration and Manual). The Department's scheme has been drawn up to meet the University requirements and the aims of the scheme are to:

  • provide an opportunity for positive and constructive two-way review of work progress;
  • allow agreement of an action plan;
  • provide for discussion of training needs for the member of staff's current role and career development;
  • allow for identification and discussion of difficulties or obstacles to effectiveness;
  • provide a way of balancing personal needs and ambitions with the University's overall objectives.

The scheme does not replace good management practice, nor will it be used as a disciplinary tool or a means of determining pay. Staff in line for a review for the current academic term will be contacted by the HR Office along with their supervisors.

The staff review form may be downloaded in Word format below and the accompanying information sheet may also be downloaded as a PDF file:

All Queries regarding Staff Review should be directed to the HR Office.
