Careers vision statement 2020/2021
At Enfield County School for Girls we are committed in ensuring that all students are provided with the support, advice, guidance and opportunities to aid them with their future success. We aim to do this by planning a comprehensive Careers programme which incorporates Careers education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CIEAG) and Work-Related learning (WRL). We believe that is crucial that high quality Careers education enables young people to make informed decisions about their futures.
The charitable Gatsby Foundation introduced 8 benchmarks for schools and colleges to use as framework to ensure that Careers education in educational establishments is of a high standard. We use the Gatsby Benchmarks Framework to guide the planning of our Careers programme. They are as follows:
- A Stable Careers Programme
- Learning from Career and Labour Market Information
- Addressing the needs of each pupil
- Linking curriculum learning to Careers
- Encounters with Employers and Employees
- Experiences of Workplaces
- Encounters of Further and Higher Education
- Personal Guidance
At Enfield County School for Girls we measure the impact of our Careers programme using the following measures:
- Self-Evaluating tool (Compass) –The Compass tool is supported by the Careers and Enterprise Company and we use this twice a year to measure our progress against the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks.
- Termly review of Careers Department Improvement plan
- September guarantee data and Intended destinations data is used to identify what students planned to achieve against what course that actually applied for.
- Feedback from Students/Staff/Parents and Carers.
- Post event evaluation forms from students and staff
- Employer and volunteer feedback forms
