Employee Review and Development (ERD) for Education Services Staff
Everything we do... Doesn’t matter if we are Teachers, Clerical Assistants, Janitors, Drivers, Librarians, is in line with the vision of the service…Learning to Achieve. These quotes make that quite clear for us.
For some people, they may feel quite far back from the learner but the work we all do impacts on learners. (e.g. ensuring invoices are paid, looking after premises etc., learning can’t happen unless all the background and prep work has been done.)
Staff are entitled to be treated fairly and equally. Opportunities should be there for all staff.
Feedback from things like the Clerical Review highlighted that some members of staff felt there was a lack of consistency.
We need to address that so….ERD is our common approach to ……..
ERD is for everyone…………
Reviewing, reflecting and recognising our strengths and understanding our areas for development
It’s about developing our people to ensure we all feel confident and empowered to take the service forward.
How often do we get a chance to stop and consider what we are doing and to gain recognition for a good job well done?
Following your meeting you should be feeling more confident and motivated and have a clear vision of where you are going, what is going to be important for you and have identified the opportunities you want to follow up on.
We don’t know what skills our staff have. People could be out there with skills and talents we don’t even know about
We have limited resources to provide opportunities and we need to ensure everyone is getting their fair share. There would be point us paying for training in e.g. Excel if everyone is the service knows how to use it or doesn’t need to use it. We need to apply what we have strategically
If people feel valued and fairly treated then we will enhance the ethos and culture across the service
Some teams may agree to undertake ERD meeting in a block i.e. 1st week in April. In others there may be a rolling programme but everyone will have had an ERD meeting by October 2015.
To teach in Scotland you must be registered with the General Teaching Council Scotland so for our GTCS registered staff ERD will support them with Professional update.
