Preparation for Reporting and Review Circular 0003/2018 - Training Presentation 2019
During the seminars we were providing a briefing and guidance on conducting the annual review with each post of responsibility holder and the preparation of the principal’s annual report to the board of management on leadership and management in the school.
This briefing included advice on preparing for the review, conducting the review meeting, setting objectives for the next school year, possible re-assignment, and the principal’s report to the board of management.
As every post holder is required to undertake the annual review with the Principal/Deputy Principal these sessions were of most benefit to the senior management team.
