Having Confident Appraisal Conversations elearning module now available

Louise Garrahan, 8 September 2021
Having Confident Appraisal Conversations

A new elearning resource for line managers undertaking appraisals and other performance conversations has been developed by Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and NHS Employers.

The module has been designed to help line managers working across the NHS in England to have positive and effective conversations with staff. It highlights good and bad practice for line managers regarding conversations on annual appraisals, pay step conversations and general supervisory meetings.

The resource also includes videos, produced by NHS Employers, which highlight good experiences of appraisals and tips on having effective discussions. Topics within the module include:

  • why appraisals matter
  • requirements in relation to pay progression and the pay step process
  • how to have a good conversation
  • preparing for appraisals and giving constructive feedback

By the end of the session, which takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, learners will be able to:

  • discuss requirements under the NHS terms and conditions of service
  • deliver the pay step process for employees
  • prepare and undertake effective and supportive appraisal discussions
  • explain why the appraisal process is important
  • effectively manage difficult conversations

The workforce pay steps are linked to appraisals and will be an essential part of line managers’ personal development plans for colleagues who are covered by the NHS terms and conditions of service.
