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 are required for all staff. These courses will be assigned to you and can be found under the Required Training Icon on your UC Learning Center home page.
