Measuring the impact
The academy completes the Careers and Enterprise Company’s Compass benchmarking tool which evaluates careers provision against the 8 Gatsby benchmarks.
At the end of each academic year the findings from student and parental surveys are used to measure the impact and inform planning for the following academic year.
Feedback is gathered form external providers and students following careers and enterprise events that take place throughout the academic year. Examples of this being the annual careers fair, mock employment interviews, enterprise days and 1 to 1 guidance interviews.
Destination data is used to inform future planning and to establish whether careers provision is offering the right advice and guidance and to ascertain whether students are making the right choices when moving into education, employment or training.
Data is collected throughout the academy based on the intended destinations of Year 11 students, generally a college course or apprenticeship. This data is shared with Warrington Borough Council. Students at risk of not going on to employment, education or training (NEET) are identified at an early stage and given priority appointments with our careers adviser and, where necessary additional interventions.
