Member Performance Assessment Repository

Home / Member Performance Assessment Repository

Share and exchange

The assessment of tribunal members’ performance is essential for adjudicative excellence, member development and recommendations for reappointment. There is huge potential for tribunals across the country to share their best practices, expertise and resources.

This online repository will be a valuable source of information, policies and forms for the performance assessment of members. We hope tribunals will contribute materials as well as make use of the materials contributed by others. We also welcome your suggestions for improving how this Repository is set up.

To contribute materials or provide feedback, please e-mail info@ccat-ctac.org.

Please note that the information posted in the Repository is available in the language that was submitted.
