An ESR happens at the end of each Review Period (usually every 6 months) and it is the ES who decides which ESR type is appropriate.
For more information on the types of ESR available please see this page.

What concerns might an ES have that might prevent an iESR being appropriate?
- Unresolved concerns raised from a previous ESR
- ‘Level of Supervision’ needed is not where it needs to be based on performance in the WPBA tools, This could mean more than the anticipated number of WPBA have been graded as ‘needing further development' or 'below expectations’
- Lack of engagement in the Portfolio has been identified
- Concerns have been highlighted by the local education team or your supervisors in the 'Educator Notes' section of your Portfolio
