Monitoring and Evaluation
The CEIAG team meet on a regular basis to develop, monitor and evaluate CEAIG across the school.
Mulberry Academy Woodside’s progress towards achieving the Gatsby Benchmarks is evaluated using the online Compass tool (as recommended in Careers guidance and access for education and training providers Jan 2018). This is carried out on an annual basis by the Careers Leader. The CEIAG development plan is based upon the outcomes of the Compass audit.
Provision is also monitored through regular feedback from students, parents/carers, staff, governors and our partners. This feedback is collected through questionnaires and forms at the end of each year. This is analysed by the Careers Leader with actions fed back to staff. Key action points are also included in the annual CEIAG development plan.
External provision is monitored and evaluated through the school’s quality assurance procedures including observations, student/staff/parents&carers feedback at the end of each event. This is analysed by the Careers Leader with actions fed back to staff via CEIAG team meetings. Key action points are also included in the annual CEIAG development plan.
The effectiveness of our careers guidance will be reflected in the higher numbers of students progressing to positive destinations such as apprenticeships, technical routes, sixth form colleges, further education colleges, or employment. Destination data is used to assess how successfully students make the transition into the next stage of education or training, or into employment and to inform future CEIAG provision. This is analysed by the Careers Leader with key trends and actions fed back to SLT and Governors. A designated governor has responsibility for overseeing the quality of careers guidance.
The CEIAG policy is reviewed on an annual basis by the Careers Leader. This is ratified by the Headteacher and Governors.
