Nomad, that is total nonsense. Support plans are simply a bullies charter to allow heads to beat their staff over the head with the threat of capability. They are not, nor intended to be, supportive. They are abusive and should be illegal. A mate of mine was told that no evidence was needed to put her on 'support', which as we all know is the first stage of capability. To threaten someones livelihood, after many years of performing a job well, with no evidence or apparent need for it, is just obscene.
