2 minute guide to annual AAME appraisal

General advice

To qualify for the Suitable Person service you should confirm that your professional activity is mainly Aviation related and that there is no identifiable Designated Body (such as NHSE or the Faculty of Occupational Medicine).  In other words, you cannot get an appraisal review elsewhere

  • Use an approved electronic format. (As on this website)
  • Describe and evidence reflection, learning and changes
  • Please select/contact your appraiser. Send your appraisal portfolio 3 weeks (minimum 2) before the appraisal
  • Your appraiser is interested in what you think and how you intend to develop

Specific requirements – for Pandemic ‘concessions’ talk to your Appraiser

  • Commentary on learning outcomes from last year’s Personal Development Plan (PDP)
  • 20 credits of CPD (use CAA Learning Pool). 1 credit = 1 hour demonstrated by a note of lessons learned. Certificates not needed
  • Quality improvement activity. e. g. Audit, Incident, Case Review or a narrative of improvements 
  • Formal or validated Colleague and Client Feedback. Please reflect on learning from complaints, compliments, criticisms or suggestions (Once in each 5-year revalidation cycle)
  • Declare any Complaints or that there are none
  • Ideas for 3 PDP objectives
