Academic promotions – supplementary clarification of guidelines – 2020/21
Cases for promotion are assessed against evidence of performance over several years. Our promotions procedures and guidelines make explicit provision for individual circumstances to be taken into account, including periods of maternity and parental leave, part-time employment, disability, periods of absence due to ill health etc.
If candidates for promotion wish therefore to bring specific matters to the attention of the panel about the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic for the period since March 2020 this should be done as part of the usual individual statement. If appropriate, it might also be addressed in the supporting statement from the senior colleague.
All members of Promotions Committees (School and Faculty) have completed Equality, Diversity and Inclusion training and EDI outcomes of promotion are monitored on an annual basis.
Faculties also have their own specific information and requirements with regards to promotion. Please follow the link below for your Faculty information and guidance.
