SEE HOW WE MEASURE AND ASSESS THE IMPACT OF THE CAREERS PROGRAMME
RFSS works closely with the CW Growth Hub . This is an external organisation that supports us to develop and strengthen our careers education strategy across the whole school.
At RFSS we use the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks and the Careers Development Institute Framework as a foundation when planning our Careers programme. The effectiveness of our provision is reviewed by the CW Growth Hub and the Careers and Enterprise Company using the Compass Plus 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.
This ensures the development of our careers strategy is ongoing. RFSS is a member of the CW Growth Hub. We will benchmark our schools against the Gatsby Benchmarks once a term.
In line with the recommendations set out in Gatsby Benchmark 1, we as a school plan to review the published information on an annual basis, inviting feedback from key audiences in our stakeholder evaluation group.
Why we evaluate – This careers programme is evaluated every year to assess its efficacy and areas for improvement. Key stakeholders (scholars, parents, teachers and employers) provide feedback on their participation in activities via questionnaires, surveys and focus groups throughout the year. We use the evidence collected to inform continuous improvement of the programme.
How we evaluate – the school careers leader combines their own knowledge, evidence and information and provides school improvement recommendations to SLT towards the end of the summer term for the following academic year.
What we evaluate
Stakeholder Feedback – We review samples of feedback collected using various methods after activities, events and experiences.
Implementation – We review what was actually delivered against the programme of planned activity and how well it went.
Impact -We measure key performance indicators linked directly to our vision and desired outcomes for our students
