Staff Connect Support & Guidance


The University of Kent now uses the Staff Connect system to securely record, store and provide access to appraisal documents as part of the appraisal (RPD) process. All reviewers have a responsibility to record the basic details of any RPD discussion which takes place during the year and to save the notes associated with the discussion either using the embedded form or by uploading the appropriate templated documents.

The guidance below provides 'how to' guides to the basic requirements for reviewers but also infomation for staff on how to aouthorise, access and view their appraisal (RPD) documentation once stored in Staff Connect.
