Assessment against the promotion criteria requires the exercise of judgement by the promotion committees but the decisions can be robustly informed by objective evidence. Examples of evidence to support the criteria are provided within the below guidance documents. Applicants for promotion will be assessed against the evaluative criteria, informed by indicators of excellence. A limited number of examples of indicators of excellence are provided and set out under each criterion.
Please note: Departments/Faculties may wish to use the example indicators provided, however the stated indicators are not intended to be exhaustive. The University recognises that there is diversity in disciplinary norms. It is therefore important that each Department/Faculty is responsible for determining the appropriate indicators within their respective area.
