Professional Development Programme (PDP)
Lecturers at the University of Exeter are initially appointed to a ‘Professional Development Programme’ (PDP) of up to five years and their appointment and progression to Senior Lecturer status will be confirmed upon successful completion of the programme.
Personal goals and objectives are agreed in line with a framework and represents the minimum level of performance which the Deputy Vice Chancellor and Dean of College will normally seek in relation to successful completion of probation.
New lecturers are assigned an Academic Lead to ensure that they receive the appropriate level of support to enable them to become fully effective in their role and the PDR system is used to monitor progress and agree future actions.
