You will receive a letter from the appraisal support team every year (usually in March) detailing the month of your appraisal and your appraiser. You can appeal for allocation of a different appraiser at this stage if you feel this is necessary (complete the form below). You should be contacted by your appraiser about 8 weeks before your appraisal is due to arrange a mutually convenient time and place to meet for your appraisal. Your appraiser will need to know what electronic method of appraisal you will be using.
If you have not heard within one month of your appraisal date please contact your appraiser or the appraisal support team (see contact details below).
During your appraisal you will agree a Personal Development Plan for the following year.
Your appraiser will complete a summary of the appraisal discussion. Once approved by you the appraiser will complete agreed statements to the responsible officer and it will be locked down. The enhanced Revalidation ePortfolio toolkit sends copies directly to the appraisal support team and yourself. If using the MAG your appraiser sends a locked down copy to you and to the appraisal support team. It is important you keep this copy safely as you will need it to create a new form for the following year’s appraisal.
Your appraiser also completes a checklist (see Appraisal Checklist Template below) which is sent to you and the appraisal support team. The appraisal support team uses this to collate a dashboard of your appraisal supporting information. This helps them to advise you if you are fit for revalidation at the end of each five year cycle; if not they will advise you in advance what additional activity you will need to undertake.
