Strategic Goals

At Clifton Community School, we aim to fulfil a set of strategic goals set out by the department of education with regards to the careers programme and the support and advice we offer within the school.

  • All schools to begin working toward the Gatsby Benchmarks, meeting them by the end of 2020.
  • All schools to have a named Careers Leader in place by September 2018.
  • Schools and colleges should offer every young person in years 7 – 11 at least one encounter a year by 2020.
  • Schools and colleges to have access to an Enterprise Adviser by the end of 2020.
  • All schools should have in place a link governor for careers.
  • Every school must ensure that there is an opportunity for a range of education and training providers to access all pupils in year 8 to year 11.

How the school measures and assesses the impact of the careers programme on pupils

  • Activity is evaluated by students on an individual basis.
  • Overall provision and ideas for improvement are tabled and discussed as agenda items at Student Council.
  • Provision is assessed against the national Gatsby Benchmarks and areas for development are identified.
  • Careers and employability provision is also informed through annual individual student surveys asking respondents to identify areas of interest and support needed – this information is then used to support individuals and plan provisions such as trips to specific places of learning or employment.
  • Provision is also informed through the sharing of good practice through local careers network meetings, the enterprise adviser network that the school is a part of and the professional development of the Careers Leader.
