The College recognises that an annual appraisal system is an important mechanism for ensuring that College objectives are communicated to all staff and progress against them can be measured. As a result, an annual appraisal will be required of all members of staff in the College. The appraisal year runs from October to September with SMART objectives being set to cover this period. The deadline for 2013/14 appraisals to be completed was 29 November 2013.
How to Login to the Appraisals at RVC System
To login to the online system, staff should visit the Appraisals at RVC system, and use the same username and password as they would to login to the College network. For information about training sessions on how to use the online system, see below.
Appraisers should login to the system first and set up their appraisee's appraisal meeting date and time (appraisers are strongly encouraged to read the guidance notes, particularly section 3 - creating the appraisee's online form prior to using the system).
The system will send an email to the appraisee when their appraiser has completed this task, asking them to login and complete their appraisal form. Appraisees will then be able to access their appraisal form.
Appraisees and Appraisers are encouraged to read the Notes for Guidance (below) which have been developed to provide guidance on how to use the system, how to complete the form and what information needs to be captured by appraisers at the appraisal meeting to allow the process to be completed as smoothly as possible. These notes for guidance are also available to download after appraisees/appraisers login to the system
New starters who join the College during the appraisal year should be set SMART objectives until 30th September. Appraisers should complete the New Starter Objectives Form and return a completed copy to Staff Training and Development.
If you would like training on how to use the system, please contact Staff Training and Development on firstname.lastname@example.org.
