Performance Appraisal Learning Resources


All UCOP employees and people managers will participate in STEP training. Our blended learning approach pairs self paced e-courses with live virtual classes in order to reduce overall training time, enhance learning and allow for technical support, questions and practice within the live learning sessions.  A detailed overview of the process is outlined in the chart below.

Self-paced e-courses for each phase of the process are available to review . These courses will be assigned to you if applicable.  All assigned trainings can be found under the Required Training icon on your UC Learning Center home page.

Optional resources can be accessed and are available as needed.
