How do I add and manage staff Probations?

You can create a staff Probation Period and record reviews against that Probation. You can then keep track of staff who are currently in their Probation Period, staff who have had their Probation Reviews, if they have passed or failed their Probation, if they need to extend the Probation period and notes to support why.

 

Adding a staff Probation

Navigate to the staff profile of the staff member you would like to add a Probation Period for by using the search bar or the School > All Staff > Browse Staff page.

Go to the Contract section of their Profile from the left-hand menu.

If you set your end date to be in the past, and you have input a Probation Decision other than Undecided, no further action is required.  

If your Probation end date is in the future, you can return to this page to amend the Decision at any point. You can also easily update upcoming or undecided Probations using the Bulk update feature. Take a look at the section on Managing Probations in bulk below for instructions.

 

Adding a Probation Review

Once you have added a Probation, you can schedule a Probation Review or add information regarding a past Review by once again clicking +Add in the Probation section.

After choosing to schedule a Probation Review, you will be able to add a date for when the Review needs to take place. Please note, the Review date must be between Probation Period start and end date.

This will then update the Probation and add one scheduled Review.
