Measuring Impact

Measuring the impact of our careers program is done by the use of the School Self Evaluation Form (SSEF), the 6th Form SSEF and the 6th Form action plan. These are reviewed on a termly basis. 

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

  • 100% of our post 16 students, for who it was relevant, had face to face encounters with employers and employees in line with the Gatsby Benchmarks.

  • A personalised work placement programme is in place run by the careers leader.

  • We have a Doncaster Careers Hub and careers advisors who work alongside our careers leader to engage students in quality work related experiences.

  • A review of the careers programme is completed on an annual basis.


The careers programme and information are evaluated and reviewed yearly to ensure coverage and effectiveness.
