How we measure and assess the impact of the careers programme

Sevenhills Academy works closely with the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (GLLEP) Careers Hub. This is an external organisation that supports us to develop and strengthen our careers education strategy across the whole school.

At Sevenhills Academy, 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 GLLEP 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.

In line with the recommendations set out in Gatsby Benchmark 1, we as an Academy plan to review the published information on an annual basis, inviting feedback from key audiences in our stakeholder evaluation group. Phoenix Park Academy will also be holding an annual Future Skills Questionnaire with the scholars during their transition years so that the programme has a youth voice.
