employee performance and development policy promotes a constructive and supportive workplace culture where employees and supervisors have regular and meaningful (informal and formal) performance exchanges about standards of conduct, performance expectations and opportunities for developing capability.
Employees are encouraged to take ownership of their performance and career aspirations, understand how their work aligns to departmental objectives and act on opportunities for professional growth.
The Annual Performance Review (APR) process for teachers, heads of programs, and school leaders supports professional capability and enhances teaching and leadership practice. Aligning with the
Australian Professional Standards for Teachers and the
Australian Professional Standard for Principals, the APR process has been developed to enhance the quality of teaching and leadership in Queensland state schools and strengthen the focus on performance development in achieving improved student outcomes.
The Developing Performance Framework provides school support staff (AO2–AO8) with a process,
capability document and online tools to clarify work priorities, discuss career aspirations, and plan for support and professional development.
Performance planning and development is informed by reflection against the relevant capability frameworks or professional standards. Capability frameworks and professional standards detail expectations for all employees.
