Being an education establishment, we follow the Gatsby Benchmarks. These 8 Benchmarks are the foundation of our Careers Programme. Our provision is inspected and audited by the Careers and Enterprise Company using the Compass Careers Benchmark Tool. This tool is used by schools and colleges in England to support the analysis and evaluation of careers activity against the eight benchmarks of best practice. As recommended by Gatsby Benchmark 1, we plan to review the published Careers information on an annual basis, inviting feedback from key stakeholders.
The Careers Department coordinates a fantastic variety of activities, visits and events tailored specifically for each year group. These include; lessons and workshops integrated into the curriculum, assemblies, guest speakers, work experience schemes, practice interviews with real employers, external visits, FE / HE / Training provider talks, Careers Fair and Apprenticeship talks.
