The Brookes’ Performance and Development Review (PDR) consists of an annual PDR with a
reviewer (from April to July each year) and is normally supported by regular
1:1 meetings throughout the year.

Your annual PDR involves completing an annual PDR
form and having a meeting with your reviewer – to review your achievements
against your work-related and developmental objectives during the past year and
agree your work-related and developmental objectives for the coming year.
At regular 1:1 meetings, you can discuss your work,
progress with your work-related and developmental objectives (updating them as
appropriate), challenges you are facing and how you might overcome them,
