Academic promotions 2018
Every year the University recognises the success of individual members of staff and this year was no exception with academic staff celebrating promotions to professor, reader, senior lecturer or senior research fellow.
Over 90 members of Kent’s academic staff are celebrating promotion to professor, reader, senior lecturer or senior research fellow across our Faculties of Humanities, Sciences and Social Sciences, with effect from 1 October 2018.
The University is dependent upon the personal growth and career attainment of its academic staff to refresh, develop and strengthen our organisation for the future.
The University recognises the outstanding performance and contribution of its staff in a variety of ways; promotions, additional increments, one-off payments and team awards. We also have RPD (Reflect, Plan, Develop) framework which aims to ensure valuable conversations take place across the organisation between managers and their staff. The RPD focuses on recognising successes, agreeing shared goals and identifying individual career development opportunities.
