Quality in Careers Standard
We are delighted to announce that our careers department has been awarded the Quality in Careers Standard, the national quality award for CEIAG. The standard is aligned with the Gatsby Benchmarks (the areas that are viewed as essential to good careers guidance) and statutory guidance, so the award is an excellent indicator that our students are receiving CEIAG of the highest quality.
To gain this award, we had to provide substantial evidence against all nine criteria and be reviewed through a full-day assessment visit, which included lesson observations, interviews with the careers team and conversations with staff, senior leaders, governors, students and parents. The assessor’s report was then verified by a national steering group.
The final report was highly complementary of the school’s provision, while also supporting us in identifying strategies to improve even further over the next three years of our review cycle.
