Preparing for your Performance and Development Review

20 Jun 2022

Your opportunity to review the past year in your role, and plan your objectives for the next 12 months

Performance and Development Review

What is a Performance and Development Review?

Performance and Development Review (P&DR) meetings are the most effective way to identify how you are performing in your role and your abilities, and how to fulfil your professional aims and ambitions.

The current P&DR year is 2021-22. You should be reviewing 2021, and planning for 2022 and beyond.  The P&DR year renews at the start of November 2022.  From that point on, you will be reviewing 2022 and planning for 2023.

How do I find further information and prepare for a P&DR?

You can find further information about P&DRs on StaffNet.

To prepare for your P&DR, you will need to download the review form. The user guide explains how to do this:

Staff without access to a PC will still be able to complete all documentation in a paper format – speak to your line manager about this.
