Unit 4.1 Appraising and managing performance


UNRWA has an established procedure for the Appraisal and management of teachers’ performance. In this unit we will explore practical ways of ensuring your school has a robust and supportive on going process for appraising and managing performance.

When the appraisal process is implemented in a transparent and equitable manner, it has the potential to motivate and support all staff. There are many benefits associated with high quality appraisal systems including increased accountability, recognition and rewards for outstanding practice and coherence in the identification of whole school objectives.

We will focus on the processes and protocols to ensure a high quality system for appraisal is provided as an entitlement for all teachers.

  • understand the key components of a high quality system for appraising and managing staff performance

  • be able to establish policies and protocols for appraising and managing performance in your school
