Measurement of Careers Education Impact
The impact of the school’s Careers Education programme can be measured through the quality of student destinations at both sixteen and eighteen.
Careers Education is reviewed on a termly basis by the SLT to ensure that it is enhancing the students experience and improving the overall quality of destinations. The careers lead keeps up to date individualised records of each students’ engagement with the Careers Education programme.
Last year, 94 students completed their Year 11 studies with us, of which;
- 99% are now in education or training
- 28% continued their studies at Wye School to study three A-Levels.
- 18% continued to a sixth form other than Wye School to study A-Level subjects.
- Other students have entered either employment and/or training or are attending other further education providers.
Our Careers Leader is Ms Katherine Davis, Assistant Principal.
Our Independent Careers Advice and Guidance is provided by Mr Chris Targett, Senior Careers Advisor, CXK.
We aim to meet the requirements of the statutory guidance for schools on careers guidance and access for education and training providers, or guidance for further education colleges and Sixth-Form colleges on careers guidance.
