In our work on the Performance Management and Appraisal System and in training with schools we have been inundated with questions around how to link the standards to some sort of idea of career stage expectations.
The Lessons Learned Professional Standards Document has been designed to take the hassle out of interpreting what staff at different pay points should be doing as part of their professional practice.
There is an assumption that all staff have met the professional standards at the most basic level, but out document outlines what they should be doing above and beyond the basics.
The standards document contains comprehensive descriptors for any staff members working at M1 through to UPS3 – it can be shared with colleagues to ensure everyone knows what is expected of them and forms an excellent basis for any appraisal and performance management discussions; if an element of the standards hasn’t been met to a certain level you have an appraisal objective identified for them to work towards.
The document is available in electronic format for you to amend and adjust to suit your school, including your school logo, name and amendments to the descriptor wording should you want to.
If you ever decided to use our Lessons Learned Performance Management module it is fully compatible with the document (and also with any other standards document too).
The document can be purchased for £75. Once we have received your order we email the full document to you for you to personalise as you like.
