Achieving Success is a professional development review (PDR) framework that helps to achieve a culture of excellence in all that we do.
The University is committed to enhancing our culture of excellence through the University - the engagement of staff with the University's strategic plan and the adoption of good work practices are core underpinning requirements to achieve this.
It is important that all staff understand how their role and work fits into the Universities priorities as well as having the opportunity to discuss their career and development needs with their manager/reviewer. Achieving Success is intended to provide clarification of what is expected of us in our roles, it answers the question - why are we here?
"Our people are the most valuable asset and the contribution of staff is critical to our success."
Eileen Schofield, University Secretary
