Careers Programme – Assessment, Monitoring and Advice
Impartial specialist provision is also provided by Services for Young People (SFYP) and Essex Advice and Guidance, who start working with our Pupils in years 9, 10 and 11.
These services keep in touch with our families and visit our school regularly for 1-2-1 meetings, offering College and Career advice.
The Careers Programme is monitored and evaluated by the Deputy Headteacher, Mr Barnaby Aldiss, in consultation with other senior colleagues.
The Compass Tool also helps the school to evaluate our progress against the eight Gatsby Benchmarks. Please click here to view our Careers Strategy. This highlights the progress that we make against each of the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks. The Careers and Enterprise Company (CEC) can also inspect our work against the Benchmarks to ensure that our evaluation is effective.
We also have a link Trustee, Jacqueline Clarke, who regularly scrutinises the School’s approach and progress in terms of the Careers’ Programme, and reports to the Board of Trustees. In addition, the Lead for Careers reports at least annually to Trustees to outline progress with regard to the Gatsby Benchmarks and other updates.
Jacqui Gasgoine (Herts – Enterprise Coordinator with CEC) also oversees our work on Careers and advises of any improvements / changes.
