Guidance for new Reviewers

PDR gives reviewers the opportunity to:

  • Spend time with individuals to discuss their roles, development, achievements and contributions
  • Recognise achievements, contributions and review the impact of development through constructive conversations
  • Prioritise and plan development needs for the individual and the department
  • Ensure that their teams and reports understand agreed goals and aspirations that collectively contribute to the aims of the department and the wider University
  • Hear feedback and generate suggestions for enhancing the work of the individual, team or the department

The resources below have been put together to aid your understanding of the key elements of the PDR process and provide practical guidance to support you in fulfilling your responsibilities as a reviewer. If you are new to the role of a reviewer it would be advisable to complete the Moodle course in the list below and familiarise yourself with the 'How To' guide.

 Guidance on how to complete the new online PDR form (relevant to some colleagues in Professional Services and CCSG in 2018) will be available here shortly.
