Online resources to help you prepare for your P&DR

10 Jun 2020

Staff Learning and Development offers ideas and inspiration to help you consider your career development

Learn and Discover

Performance and Development Reviews (P&DRs) are going ahead as usual this year. As well as talking about performance and work priorities, your P&DR is an opportunity to discuss your learning and development objectives. 

There’s a wide range of online learning and development resources available on the Staff Learning & Development (SL&D) Team’s StaffNet site including a guide for creating your personal development plan. You’ll also find plenty of ideas and inspiration to help you prepare for your P&DR by taking a look at the Career Development Guide.    

You’ll find a toolkit to help you explore your career preferences; advice on developing your CV; tips on interview skills and the best ways to use social media networks to help develop your career. You can access the full range career development resources on offer at the SL&D Career Development webpages.

Even if you’re on furlough leave at the moment you can still have a P&DR discussion which focuses on your learning and development objectives, since you can carry out learning and development activities whilst you’re on furlough leave.  

You can find guidance for reviewees and reviewers along with some FAQs about the P&DR process this year on the Staff Learning and Development StaffNet site.  If you are a line manager supporting your team in preparing for P&DRs, there are lots of resources available on Managers' Essentials.
