Continuing Professional Development (Performance Management & HR)

What is Continuing Professional Development?

Performance Management and HR allows schools to create and track their staff members’ objectives, links those objectives to school objectives and manage HR processes such as leave requests or expenses claims. Users can also track review or appraisal meetings, and keep any notes or important documentation that is created. Any CPD that staff members go on can also be added to the system, and used as evidence of progress against objectives.

The Performance Management area also includes the ability to create the organisational structure of your school, so schools can easily create line management and direct report relationships between staff members.
