This resource outlines some of the key considerations in setting up or reviewing your kaiako appraisal system. You might like to listen to the whole webinar at one time, and then discuss key parts with your staff. Alternatively you can listen to it in sections and consider the key messages within each section. There are four main sections as outlined below. For each section we have suggested a reflective question that you might like to use to generate discussion and thinking.

Part 1: Tikanga Whakahaere (slide 1) 00:00-2:13

This slide outlines some underlying premises on which appraisal can be viewed and the key role that leaders have in setting a context which enables kaiako to be the best teachers they can. 

Hei whakaarotanga, hei wānanga: What can you do better to encourage the best performance from each staff member?

 

Part 2: Te Tūāpapa (slides 2, 3, 4) 02:14-05:54

This set of slides outlines the purposes of appraisal.  Appraisal is not merely about compliance but can be a key lever for enhancing both individual and organisational performance. However, the extent to which this is possible can be dependent on how you are setting your appraisal system up – is it just about compliance or is it driven by improving outcomes for learners? These slides help you to review your current system and think about the type of appraisal system you would like to implement.

Hei whakaarotanga, hei wānanga: To what extent is your current system driving improvement in learner outcomes? What would need to happen in order for appraisal of teachers to be aligned to your organisation’s goals/targets for learners?

 

Part 3: Te Taunakitanga (slides 5, 6) 05:55-09:49

These slides cover the types of evidence that kaiako need to gather. Some key considerations are outlined in order for kaiako to decide what evidence is worthwhile.

Hei whakaarotanga, hei wānanga: Have you discussed and agreed what “good” practice looks like at your place, and what is worthwhile, purposeful and necessary evidence?

 

Part 4: Te Punaha Aromihi (slides 7, 8) 09:50-14:14

In practice, a robust appraisal system will have several components from discussing and setting goals, gathering evidence, discussing that evidence, and making and documenting a judgement about a kaiako’s performance. When and how these things are done is up to each organisation. The slides help to clarify the core components of an appraisal system as well as outlining some things to discuss during an appraisal meeting. 

Hei whakaarotanga, hei wānanga: How effectively are you currently carrying out these components? How can each component of your system be better aligned to your key priorities for the year
