As THAT time of year draws near

I'm writing a list
I'm checking it twice

No I'm not talking about Christmas, we celebrate Yule in our house.
I'm not talking about that either, no, it's the dreaded appraisal time again.
I think it's 2 poor appraisals & then it becomes a disciplinary procedure, hooray, what joy.

The training I requested has not been forthcoming, the shelving I was promised has not materialised, but the measurements for it were finally taken on Friday!

I have my paperwork prepared, I have many supportive emails from staff & various other pieces of information. It's now a case of wait & see, I have made my decisions dependent on the appraisal outcome.

Good luck.

If they promised you training and it's not been forthcoming I'd say they're not in the strongest of positions...

Fingers crossed for you.

Anon, you are right, it seems to be the same in many schools, not just where I work.
Rach, I wasn't promised training but one of the complaints about me was that I couldn't use certain functions on the machine.
Thank you RQ & MD

Been there, done that (from both sides of the fence). Advice from the recently retired early? Run away!

Anon, I know it's just a way of avoiding paying a living wage.
Trish, I would if I could.
