How the school measures and assesses the impact of the careers programme on pupils
The Gryphon School, in the first instance, measures and assesses its career programme against the Gatsby Career Benchmarks. The impact of its programme is assessed through both pupil and parent voice as well as such as a feedback card and associated info alongside destination info and other developments.
In relationship to other parts of the curriculum and other policies Careers education is conducted in accordance with the School’s equal opportunities policy, work experience policy, external visits policy and other relevant policies. The whole school remit of careers is recognised and the whole careers related curriculum is currently being developed alongside that of other areas so that careers education is an integral part of the whole school curriculum.
The overall management of Careers Education and Guidance is with a member of the school’s senior management team, assisted by the Careers Leader/Adviser.
