A couple of years back, showing my ususal respect for authority and dodgy sense of humor I was trying to liven up my Apraisal meeting with my boss. On of the questions he was obliged to ask was:
"Where do you see yourself in 2 years Time"
I cheefully replied "Tahiti"
At that point matters moved on to more serious items. However I left the Dept and then the Varndean College. I'm back there now, which tripped my memory, looked up Robin and told him I'd achieved my appraisal traget - I made it to Tahiti. He replied along the lines of that the only one of the appraisal targets I ve set thats ever been achieved.
Whilst providing feedback to other members of staff's appraisals questionaires used to get sent arround one of the questions was always "Is he/she proactive in the professional development of staff" to which I always replied. "Proactive is a brand of yogurt" no one ever took me to task on this I can only conculde that nobody reads them.
