How users/participants can evaluate success

Evaluation of specific activities in data format can be problematic and often improvement cannot be directly attributed to specific activities.  However, there is overwhelming evidence that effective integrated careers provision contributes to improved results, engagement and destination data.

Annecdotal and pupil/parental regard of provision can be measured through various channels including community cohesion, parental and pupil satisfaction surveys etc.

Follow-up activities and support

Outstanding Careers offers a range of bespoke activities so no set follow up activities can be detailed. However, there is a flexible retainer based follow up package available to schools who wish to continue improvement of staff knowledge and succession planning.


All courses are individually tailored and priced accordingly.
