Impact of the careers programme

The schools careers leader receives formal feedback in the first 2 terms from Prospects which details the destinations of all students from the last year 11 cohort. This information is used to track student destinations against their desired pathways to ensure that students are proceeding into their chosen pathway. This information is also reviewed by Governors who will be informed of any NEET students from the previous cohort.
