In support of Transforming Lives the Performance & Development Review is the forum for an annual discussion between you and your manager. It considers your achievements, successes and challenges over the previous year and to review your progress against previous work, personal & career objectives. Additionally, your review importantly considers the future, identifying priorities and to agree SMART objectives, including development needs for the year ahead.
Through the introduction of the Academic Careers Framework (ACF), Transforming Lives has been translated into a set of indicators that show the contribution academics can make in order to develop a successful career and help Sheffield Hallam realise its ambitions.
Clearly there cannot be a one-size fits all approach to the review process; dependent on your role, where you are in your career the type of activity you are involved in will vary. With this in mind, the toolkit should be considered a flexible resource to pick and choose from depending on individual needs. Please remember to send a draft of the form to your identified reviewer at least 7 working days before the date of the meeting to help them to also prepare effectively.
By clicking on the links below there will be further information to support you to prepare for the review discussion,; in terms of where you are now as well as resources to support your development within the context of the ACF.
