Performance Support Form (Not available to edit)

The Performance Framework is the collective term we use at LUU to describe how we manage performance in the organisation. This starts with probation meetings. Generally speaking weekly paid staff will have probation reviews at the end of their first, second and third months. Monthly paid staff will generally have their reviews at the end of their first, third and sixth months. The Probation Form can be found here. In exceptional circumstances probation periods may be extended. If you feel that a staff member needs their probation period extending speak to a member of the people team.

Once a staff member has passed probation they have One to One Meetings. For weekly paid staff this is once a term. For Monthly paid staff these are completed by the end of November, January, May and July. Monthly Paid staff also have a 12 Month Performance Review Meeting which is competed by the end of September and a 6 Month Performance Review meeting which is completed by the end of March.

If a staff member's performance is not meeting standards talk to the People Team about Performance Support.
