PRD provides structure and support for each member of staff to contribute to the achievement of our strategic goals.

Performance Review and Development (PRD)

PRD is a collaborative, on-going process between you and your manager to plan for, develop, and evaluate your work. The PRD aims to provide clarity around your role, performance and career, and to ensure that we are jointly working towards achieving the strategic objectives of the University.

The Combined PRD Cycle

The PRD process has an annual cycle of key events that provide a focal point for the everyday conversations about performance and development.

What happens when?

November to February*

Managers and staff review performance over the previous year and agree goals for the year ahead.

May to June*

Managers and staff discuss career development goals.

Throughout the yearPerformance is monitored and reviewed and development is supported through regular conversations and feedback.

* The PRD cycle is a guideline only and managers can choose to combine these two elements of the PRD process into one meeting.
