What is the National Senior Management Survey?
The National Senior Management Survey has been launched as a tool for academic staff around the UK to complete on the practices of their senior management team. The survey seeks to move the gaze from the narrow metrics of staff performance to the senior management teams who set the conditions through which staff performance becomes possible. In so doing it seeks to ask questions of the current trajectory of higher education in the UK and to broaden debate about what universities should and could be for our students.

Wishing All Our Members And UCU Members Everywhere A Happy Christmas
From Huddersfield UCU Committee
(We’ll be continuing working hard for you in 2017!)
Find out about the university’s lecture capture policy here. Find out about opting out of lecture capture here. This information is also available from the Workload menu.
Is your appraisal process in line with the appraisal policy?
Are you being held accountable for matters over which you have little or no control (e.g. student attendance) ?
Appraisals should be about an opportunity for employees to present what they feel to be their main achievements over the last 12 months with emphasis on self appraisal.
Check out UCU’s guidance here and the university appraisal policy
Problems? Contact UCU
Please contact UCU if you would like to inform us that you have experienced problems or you suspect your appraisal has not been in line with the appraisal policy.

JOINT UNION FILM NIGHTS
7th July in Heritage Quay at 5.30
FREE ADMISSION—open to everyone.
In homage to the late Barry Hines, Yorkshireman and author of ‘Kestrel on a Knave’ on which the film was based, we proudly present ‘Kes’ . The film focuses on 15 year old Billy, an impoverished teen who finds comfort and solace in training his kestrel.
They beat him. They deprived him. They ridiculed him. They broke his heart. But they couldn’t break his spirit.
