Academic Performance Matrices and Evidence Framework
The Academic Performance Matrices and Evidence (APME) Framework describes the performance expectations by Academic Level for each Academic Career Pathway that will guide academic staff contribution to achieve our strategy and support our Mission.
The APME Framework is one of several frameworks and standards that express the University’s expectations of the conduct, capability, participation and contribution of staff (such as the Code of Conduct, the Learning for Life Framework and the Capability Development Framework).
The APME Framework applies to all academic staff. It describes the performance expectations by Academic Level for each Academic Career Pathway and provides comprehensive examples of evidence across all areas of academic activity. It also supports conversations between academic staff and supervisors about performance and career development.
The APME Framework is consistent with the Minimum Standards for Academic Levels (MSALs) and is informed by the Strategic Plan and its enabling frameworks, including the Workforce Framework, the Learning for Life Framework, the Research Intensification Framework and the Service Matters Framework.
All relevant people processes at ACU will be supported by the APME Framework over time, including job design, recruitment, induction, probation, performance review and planning, and promotion.
