 ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Performance management is a mechanism for improving teaching, learning and student experience.  A well-designed performance management procedure assists both the school and the staff member, while a poor system can exacerbate issues and see the school faced with a bullying claim. This session will explore:

  • An introduction to best practice performance management – what should the process look like?
  • Communicating with the employee
  • Establishing ways to evaluate individual performance and manage performance issues
  • Understanding the legal risks if handled poorly:
    • adverse action and general protection claims
    • bullying allegations
    • teacher stress
  • Impact of extended leave on the performance management process
  • Terminating for poor performance – how to do it effectively

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.

At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
