The biggest single issue currently facing school managers is how they should appraise their staff and what the implications of the process are. This edited collection brings together the latest thinking on the subject, from both the UK and overseas, and places it directly in the context of school management. Issues discussed include the role of appraisal in school leadership and the role of appraisal in developing teachers.
The importance of this combined with the lack of published material on the subject make this book an essential purchase for all headteachers, heads of department, INSET co-ordinators and postgraduate educational management students.
'The teaching profession very much needs a book like this publication is particularly timely given the government's agenda.' Richard Parker, Headteacher 'This is an outstanding selection of authors.' - Professor Harry Tomlinson, NPHQ Regional Training Development Centre, Leeds Metropolitan University 'As a practitioner who is involved in the assessment of leaders and managers in education and as one who will be a threshold assessor I see great and timely value in a book of this type.' - Philip Braide, LEA Advisor 'This would appear to fill a gap in the market.' - Caroline Wragg, University of Exeter
