I've managed to get over 10 years into my teaching career without ever being appraised! How? Well, I've been blessed(?) with a series of managers who were just very laid-back with the paperwork (I did remind them quite a few times each.. but I felt if I'd pushed it even more, it would have started to seriously rock the boat!) Recently at an interview, however, I was asked a question about what I saw as my development needs, followed up with "perhaps you could talk us through some of your recent appraisal targets and how you're addressing the areas highlighted"! Eek! @TheoGriff and any other seasoned recruiters here - do you have any advice on what I should have said to such a question and perhaps even more importantly, in my next role, how can I go about making sure I get appraised - without seeming to be 'making a fuss'? Thanks for your help!
