Below are various HR documents and forms which include instructions about how to complete them. If you have any questions please get in touch.

- Training contract: Some staff will undertake professional study, qualifications or courses which are supported by Ebor. In such instances it is likely that the employee will need to sign a training contract which is in addition to their normal terms and conditions and is a formal agreement between themselves and the Trust. The attached document needs completing and submitting to the HR Manager for review and consideration by the Executive.

It is a process that supports the work of individuals and teams by setting and reviewing objectives within the context of the department and school improvement plans. It also aids staff development, helps to raise standards, ensures good management of people and resources, and promotes continuous improvement for the whole school.

Estates information and guidance notes to follow
We’re keen for all schools to start using Twitter. It’s a fast growing channel of communicating via social media and unlike Facebook, is easy and allows for sending messages quickly.
It’s not meant to replace the school newsletter but is a useful addition. Ideally, the password and login (available via email from firstname.lastname@example.org) should be shared with two or three key staff who understand the medium and who can post useful items as and when needed.
There is no expectation to slavishly post something every day – just as and when. It could be a reminder about a non-uniform day, or a picture of the team having won a sports match. It’s a friendly informal way of building bridges with parents.
Twitter users should read this guidance before getting started. To read our Guide to using social media click here
