The PDR allows you to reflect on what you’ve achieved during the last 12 months, prioritise for the next 12 months and identify support you need to achieve your goals. If you are nearing the end of your probationary period the PDR meeting will provide a framework within which the probation discussion can take place.

You and the reviewer may agree to swap your notes before the PDR meeting. If you do, you could use the PDR Form to help prepare the agenda and write some draft notes.
