Developing Your Staff (Meaningful Reviews) – People Management Module

Learning Resource Overview

Supporting the development of your staff is an essential part of your role. It ensures your team members have the competence and confidence to provide the best possible service. This learning resource explores how to maximise the effectiveness of the KSF Personal Development Planning and Review process for your staff team.

How the Learning Resource works

The resource has 2 core elements and links to a wider learning pathway.

  • LearnPro e-Learning Module (GGC:166 NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework): contains a range of information and resources to provide underpinning knowledge on the KSF Personal Development Planning and Review process and on good practice in developing your staff. It can be accessed on the LearnPro platform and can be found under the CPD tab.
  • Virtual Sessions (1.5 hours) are also available for Reviewers and Managers with the focus on the application of learning around this, in particular to:
    • Give participants the opportunity to reflect on their role in developing their staff
    • Identify ways to make reviews more meaningful in practice
    • Identify key actions to progress KSF PDP&R in participants own area

Who is this Learning Resource aimed at?

Any Manager or KSF Reviewer in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde who has responsibility for managing or reviewing NHSGGC staff in their teams. This includes Managers and KSF Reviewers employed in integrated Health and Social Care Partnerships who are not directly employed by NHSGGC and require to support NHS staff with their KSF PDP&R.


For Reviewers/Managers who are attending the Virtual Sessions within this resource, there are some pre-requisites prior to attending. They should:  

  • Complete the LearnPro e-Learning Module (GGC 166 NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework) which provides underpinning knowledge and resources
  • Complete the Reflective Template (issued as part of the joining instructions): In order to get the most out of the time during the virtual session, staff are expected to have completed a brief template to capture their reflections/experience of KSF PDP&R in practice.


To ensure maximum impact of these modules we have introduced more extensive evaluation.

As part of the booking process you and your manager will be asked to consider your reasons for attending the module and how outcomes will be measured. We will contact you and your manager approximately 10 weeks after the module to gather feedback on how your learning was applied.
