OCDEM operates a Personal Development and Review Scheme (PDR), in line with the University’s scheme guidance.

The scheme is for all staff whether on fixed-term, permanent or open-ended contracts

Participating in an annual PDR discussion enables staff to;

–   Review the progress they have made over the last year
–   Discuss additional support they might need to undertake their work over the coming year
–   Discuss their career plans and what support the department or central university can do to help fulfil those plans.

The scheme enables staff, where appropriate to discuss and agree with their line manager their forthcoming objectives and to understand how those objectives fit with the Department’s.
