Performance Management in Education: Improving Practice. British Educational Management Series.
Reeves, Jenny; Forde, Christine; O'Brien, Jim; Smith, Pauline; Tomlinson, Harry
This book explores managing the performance of education staff in England and Wales and in Scotland. It compares the different policies of performance management as practiced in England and Wales and in Scotland. (The Scottish system of education is independent of that of England and Wales.) Chapter 1 provides an introduction to performance management and improving practice. Chapter 2 investigates the emphasis on performance management in policy terms and what that means for schools, teachers, and local governments. Chapter 3 discusses the debate surrounding performance-based pay. Chapter 4 proposes a model for improving practice. Chapter 5 examines work-based learning (WBL) and the main forms of structured intervention aimed at improving performance in school settings. Chapter 6 examines Scottish Qualification for Headship (SQH), a program of staff development designed to enhance the individuals performance. Chapter 7 explores what it means to undertake a program of WBL by looking at the experiences of participants in the SQH program. Chapter 8 considers how to design and implement an assessment process for a WBL program. Chapter 9 discusses developing performance-management practice and policy in the schools. (Contains numerous tables and figures, a subject index, and 180 references.) (WFA)
