Reflect, Plan, Develop (RPD) is a versatile appraisal framework supported by guidance documents, forms and information that you can use flexibly to shape conversations about work priorities, to set objectives and discuss career development at the University. The focus of RPD is on the conversations between a reviewee and reviewer (usually the Line Manager, unless for Academic roles) and about connecting your role with the University’s vision, department/school objectives and identifying individual development opportunities.
Within the RPD intranet page you can find help and support on how to prepare and hold RPD discussions, how to record and store your discussions, as well as a list of frequently asked questions to help you during your discussions.
