APPRAISAL FOR ACADEMIC STAFF

The General Board has decided that the appraisal process for academic staff should be suspended for 1998 while a general review of the scheme is undertaken. This review will take account of the proposal in the report of the Commission of Inquiry for five-yearly reviews of the balance of an individual's academic duties, and of a national review of arrangements for appraisal which has been conducted by the Universities and Colleges Staff Development Agency.

Members of the academic staff will therefore not receive appraisal forms this year (but of course they will remain able to raise any particular matter of concern with the head of department/faculty board chairman or other office-holder, as appropriate).

The General Board hopes that the appraisal scheme, incorporating any necessary changes, will be re-established in 1999, covering in that year the period from 1 July 1997 to 30 June 1999.
