What is WPPR?

The Work Planning and Performance Review (WPPR) is an individual plan, which aligns work performance and professional development objectives with the University’s strategic goals. Developed through a structured, meaningful discussion between a line manager and team member; the plan specifies the work or research outcomes the staff member will deliver and the support and development that will be provided to assist the development of capabilities and the delivery of the agreed outcomes over the coming Twelve month period.
