Performance management is developing and implementing policies and procedures that ensure RTLB can provide fitting services.
In essence, RTLB should meet effectively the needs of schools and students consistent with the goals and objectives in the cluster’s annual and strategic plans.
The cluster manager makes certain an appropriate performance management system is in place.
This system should have:
- policies and procedures in relation to staff conduct and competency
- an appraisal process that fulfils the statutory requirements for renewal of teacher practising certificates
- support processes for RTLB including professional learning and development and for succession planning.
Effective performance management system
An effective performance management system should encompass many personnel practices.
Consider how you recruit and retain staff and review your selection and appointment methods.
Be familiar with those clauses of collective and individual employment contracts which relate to the performance management of staff.
Make sure you know the statutory requirements for registration, the appraisal process, and the kaupapa for the discipline and dismissal.
Finally, sound management systems are ones that take into account:
- professional development and succession planning
- practitioner supervision
- performance supervision
- remuneration management.
The board is responsible for ensuring the cluster manager and each RTLB participate in the performance management process.
Effective performance management ensures that the RTLB know what is expected of them.
They feel supported to achieve the agreed expectations and to develop their skills.
They are aware the will be monitored and assessed on their performance.
