Track Performance Management Objectives for Everyone in Your School

The Staff Performance Management and Development Module allows you to manage the entire performance management process for every staff member in your school, including both teaching and non-teaching staff.

Staff are able to track their own progress towards achieving targets whilst graphs and tables can be consulted by senior leaders for up-to-date information on which objectives have been met and who needs to complete an action in order to keep the process moving.

Of all the support teams I deal with on systems and ICT, the Excellence in Teaching team is by far the best, they’re amazing and so helpful!

In relation to the ETF – it is an excellent tool, which we have been training staff to make the most of this year, ready for a full roll-out in the Autumn Term. My thanks again for this excellent resource – it is already making a big difference.
