Evaluation of our careers plan

We review our Career Guidance programme every academic year with appropriate changes made in conjunction with DfE Guidance as well as student feedback and destination data.

We also use the Compass tool – an on-line self-evaluation tool to assess how our careers support compares against the Gatsby Benchmarks and the national average.  We also work with The Careers and Enterprise Company.
