Measuring Impact

The impact of our careers program is done by the use of the SSEF, the 6th Form SSEF and the 6th form action plan on a termly basis. 

Impact of our careers programme can be seen in our compliance check meeting.

  • 100% of years 10, 11 and Post 16 students had face to face encounters with employers and employees in line with the Gatsby Benchmarks.
  • A comprehensive personalised work placement programme is in place run by the transitions coordinator.
  • We have a careers hub in the centre of Rotherham linking to the University and College.
  • A review of the careers programme is completed through the robust MER cycle, PCRs, EHCP meetings and the data on positive employer encounters.
