This second edition of the Posters' highly successful guide to teacher appraisal has been substantially updated to include the definitive Department For Education (DFE) regulations and guidelines which have appeared since the publication of the first edition. The book includes two completely new chapters, on the new regulations as they affect grant-maintained schools and on developments in Northern Ireland and Scotland. The authors have orientated their work much more to schools, providing updated versions of their valuable training materials for school-based INSET, group work and self-study. This second edition also includes research evidence from trials of headteachers' appraisal.
