Staff Development

What type of staff appraisal scheme will I encounter at Sussex ?

The Sussex Staff Appraisal Scheme is a classic performance management/development scheme which focuses on reviewing and setting work priorities, and associated support/staff development objectives. The core principles are set out in the Sussex Staff Appraisal Scheme Policy [pdf].

The current Appraisal Scheme is reasonably new and was developed by a group comprising representatives from all categories of staff, and the Unions. The Scheme is not cast in stone but is changed periodically to reflect feedback from the University community. If you have any feedback on your appraisal experiences, email
