PRDP Training

Purpose

A Personal Review and Development Plan (PRDP) is a summary of your past achievements, a plan toward both your future programme of work and your career, and an identification of skills or resources that would assist you in reaching your goals. It should comprise a frank, confidential two-way discussion with your appraiser and some brief notes for your personal reference.  It is NOT a replacement for regular meetings with your line manager concerning detailed tasks, nor does it form part of any formal HR mechanism (e.g. promotion or re-grading). As the name indicates, it is a PERSONAL review providing an opportunity for you to reflect on your work, your role within Imperial, and your future.

Preparation

Both Appraisee and Appraiser (probably, but not necessarily the line manager) should come to the PRDP meeting with notes and ideas covering all aspects of the Appraisee’s contributions to Imperial.

Training is available to book on the Organisational and Staff Development PRDP Briefing page.

Please send the front of the form to HoD’s office (to indicate that the appraisal has taken place).  Any record on page two is for the benefit of the appraisee and appraiser only.

PRDP Submission deadlines

 Confirmation of dates will be communicated by email annually. It is your responsibility to complete your PRDP before the deadline.
