Anna Lee is the Teaching and Learning Improvement Manager at Worcestershire Adult Learning. Alto has recently been introduced to manage staff appraisals and staff objectives are directly linked to the overriding priorities of the organisation. As an integrated electronic solution, Alto replaced an inefficient time-consuming paper-based approach.
Setting up Alto does take some time; however it is time well spent. The system is delivering noticeable benefits and cost savings. It will pay immense dividends for us.
Alto offers bespoke functionality and our customer care team have tailored the system to meet the needs of Anna and her team. Now that Alto has been effectively implemented, Anna is very satisfied that her and the team made the decision to use Alto.
We are now able to keep track of the individual journeys that our teachers are making. Previously follow-up activities were set following appraisals; however, it was not easy tracking the progress that was being made. Now, everything is held together in one convenient place. The importance of appraising staff is not lost and value does not slip away.
Alto has helped Worcestershire Adult Learning to elevate the status of staff appraisals.
Having Alto means that we have a strategic approach to performance management. Conversations about appraisals are no longer in our inbox. They have moved into a different scene where there is greater purpose. This distinction means we are free to focus on more immediate issues.
Every Alto customer has a dedicated account manager to oversee their account. Andy Goodeve is in regular contact with Anna and is a passionate educationist, with over 30 years of experience in developing and improving schools from a leadership and business perspective.
Andy challenges everyone’s thinking and he possesses an excellent working knowledge of the system. He advises us on what we should do and doesn’t always tell us what we want to hear. Nevertheless, he offers excellent support based on trusted education theory and practice.
If you would like to experience the benefits that are enjoyed by Anna and her colleagues at Worcestershire Adult Learning, please get in touch.
