Abstract: This research examines the Performance Appraisal of administrative personnel in the Department of Education: iLembe District Office. The main aim of this study was to improve the understanding and the implementation of Performance Appraisal of all employees in the KZN Department of Education. This is a case study research utilising purposive sampling and thereafter census to identify the most appropriate participants based on the research objectives. This approach helped to reconcile findings through triangulation and complementing qualitative and quantitative data (both primary and secondary). This study relied on primary data as well as secondary data obtained from questionnaires administered to all administrative personnel in the Department of Education, iLembe District Office. The study revealed that management and administrative employees in the Department are aware that a Performance Appraisal policy exists but lack an understanding of its meaning and intent. Furthermore, Performance Appraisal was introduced without the appropriate training and follow-up by the Department of Public Service and Administration. Instead it was assumed that every worker in the Department understood the purpose and aim of the policy. However, management and particularly employees are still unclear about the main purpose of Performance Appraisal and employees in particular feel very dissatisfied and demotivated with the way in which it is implemented.
