How we plan to measure impact (remember we open in September 2021 and will have out first examinations Year 13s graduate in 2023!):

An annual review of careers programme and is conducted by the Assistant Principal. This policy is reviewed and developed annually in discussion with students, parents, staff, governors and other relevant partners. The CEIAG strategy is audited against statutory guidance, evidence on good practice and other relevant frameworks and will be updated accordingly.

We also use student, parent and employer voice via surveys and dialogue to evaluate the success of our events/networking and information provision. We use these measures to build on our successes and to keep making our provision better.

The impact of the careers programme on students will be measured and evaluated using the evidence below:

  • Destinations data, evaluation forms, student surveys, focus groups and evidence of impact will all be used evaluate the effectiveness of current careers provision and inform further developments of our strategy.
  • During whole school MER, links to careers and departments in which CEIAG is an area of strength will be commented on during learning walks, lesson visits and curriculum reviews.
     

The next date of review for the careers programme will be June 2022. To access our CEIAG policy then please click here.
