Personal Development Review (PDR)

* Announcement *  NDM are pleased to introduce our new online PDR platform supported by simitivesimitive logo.jpg

personal development

The PDR is a process of self-reflection and assessment, with the aim of identifying training and development needs as well as setting agreed objectives for the period to follow. The Department’s PDR scheme is underpinned by a set of principles agreed by the Personnel Committee and supported by  People & Organisational Development (POD).

Personal - it is about the person and helps integrate individual aspirations and capabilities with the needs of the University and the challenges of the role. But it also covers performance expectations, through the development and achievement of objectives;

Development - it is about the development or changes needed to enable individuals to do their job well and to develop their potential, if they want; and to discuss any career aspirations that the reviewee wants to share;

Review - it looks backward to review past achievements and reflect on lessons learned and then looks forward to planning the year to come.

Following feedback from staff surveys and Athena Swan working groups, NDM has taken the decision to move to an annual completion date of 30 June each year for all PDRs in the department. The PDR completion window will be open from now until 30 June 2022.

If you have any questions regarding your PDR, please contact: Sarah Spruytenburg on ext 12922 or Lois Nicholas on ext 12946 or email: learning.development@ndm.ox.ac.uk
