    I was going to rant about the terribleness of the whole system of PRD, I had written two paragraphs. I realised that my opening was a far more eloquent summing up of the farce that is PRD and deleted the extra.
    Jimmy seems to be getting the same value from the process.

    I made a point of filling up the electronic survey I was sent by the GTCS, when my PRD coincided with my PU year. At least it gave me a chance to give vent.

    It’s a good form for exposing the work done by subordinates for lazy managers. Departmental meeting minutes are a middle leader responsibility and unpromoted staff are performing a devolved/delegated management task by doing so. So always insert it as devolved management experience.
    It’s worth looking over the GTCS job description pack online - just google it you’ll find it - to read just how much stuff we happily nod along to and do as teachers is actually management work.

    GTCS PRD material is an absolute moon-howling joke! All those circles and colours....no start point, no end...excellent imagery about teaching these days - the eternal hamster wheel of excessive workload!

    Anyone who puts anything on their personal GTCS / PRD web page / profile thingy is a complete and utter mug. There is no requirement to do so - who are you trying to impress? Yourself? Nobody reads this guff!

    If nobody used it they would have to shut it down
