Job applicants' appraisals to be opened up to heads

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by gailrobinson, May 31, 2011.

  1. Thought jobseekers would be interested in this new change to the regulations.
    Heads will be allowed to view confidential HR records about teachers' previous performance before appointing, as part of Government attempts to end the recycling of "incompetent" members of the profession.
    In future, all reports of appraisals will be available to school leaders employing a new member of staff.
    Department for Education officials have said the change in regulations will stop the practice of heads providing good references for incompetent staff as part of a "compromise agreement".
    Teaching and heads' unions have branded the reforms "madness" and "misguided and ridiculous".
