Appraisals are used in many different work sectors and they only work if completed and monitored correctly. This course covers why we have apprasials and how to carry them out effectively in any workplace. By the end of the session you will have an understanding of how to make the appraisal process a positive one. You will be exploring the process of review and appraisal, learn to develop a positive approach to this process and receive guidance on the appraisal process.
This week we are highlighting how managers can create a culture of learning in services by encouraging their staff to engage in relevant development opportunities, not just at induction but throughout, enabling their team to develop and advance in their careers. These opportunities can be in core skills
development which will support staff at work and in everyday life, as well as specialist care training to promote safe and enabling care practice.
