The University's Academic Framework – are four, connected sets of activities which will enable achievement of higher performance by;
- Establishing the mutuality of expectations between the University and academic staff (career pathways)
- Providing an opportunity to discuss and agree how those expectations might be met and how career aspirations might be supported (through appraisals focussing on the future)
- Capturing the relative effort that members of academic staff are committing to different academic activity. This is with a view to ensuring that the University as a whole and individuals have the right balance of work and well-being to support joint ambitions (balanced academic workload)
- And recognise academic excellence and contribution to the University's aims (reward and recognition).
