Leaders ensure that regular, frequent and meaningful engagement takes place with staff at all levels, so that they can be confident that issues will be identified. When issues are identified – in particular about workload – leaders deal with them consistently, appropriately and quickly.



Who can use Stedfast?

The staff performance module can be used by any organisation. It is designed primarily for organisations that need to set out key performance indicators for staff and conduct ongoing performance reviews.

How do professional standards work?

Each job role has associated professional standards. These can be created by the organisation or published by professional bodies. For example:

● Professional standards for FE teachers
● Teachers Standards
● Headteachers Standards
● Higher Education Professional Standards
● Professional standards are then aligned to performance objectives.

Professional standards can also be aligned with CPD records.

Does this all take a lot of time?

No. Staff performance management using Stedfast saves time. Once professional standards and staff performance objectives have been added, you can start with staff appraisals. We can also help add professional standards for you.

What are performance objectives?

These are set by line managers or HR and are the expected key performance indicators for staff. They can be transferred from one year to the next and added to or changed. When conducting staff reviews, the reviewer and reviewer work through each performance objective and add findings and action goals.

How often can we review staff?

You can review staff as often or as little as you want. Your staff review cycle is entirely up to you. Different members of staff can be reviewed at different timescales.

Do we need this for OfSTED?

Absolutely. OfSTED will expect to see that you performance manage your staff. They will also want to see how you support them in their CPD and personal well-being. More information can be found in the Education Inspection Framework.
