Measuring the Impact of the Careers Programme
It is important that we measure the impact of our strategy through student, employer and parent feedback. The careers programme is evaluated each year using the Gatsby Benchmarks through the Careers and Enterprise Compass Tool and all students, parents and staff are invited to contribute to the evaluation. Additionally, the effectiveness of the careers programme is evaluated by analysis of students’ destinations at Post-16, which we track to evaluate the effectiveness of our Careers Guidance and Inspiration.
