Support Staff Appraisal Meeting

Whānau Manaaki Kindergartens have developed an appraisal process for you in your role in kindergarten.

It is our policy that all staff employed by Whānau Manaaki will have a chance to engage in appraisal.  It is also a requirement of your employment agreement.

This is an opportunity for you to think about your work – about what you like, what you need some support with and what you are most interested in – and set some goals for yourself for the coming year.
