Appraising with Confidence (for those appraising staff)

Suitable for anyone carrying out Appraisals with staff, including managers and supervisors and those with delegated responsibility

This appraisal training is mandatory for new appraisers and for those who have not previously completed ‘License to Appraise’ or the previous Appraising with Confidence level 1-3 or level 4-6 workshops. It is also suitable as a refresher.  The training has been revisited to create this enhanced ‘Appraising with Confidence’ workshop.  This practical workshop supports all aspects of appraisal; including how to prepare for and hold meaningful two-way conversations.
