Compass Evaluation

Compass is the careers benchmark tool for all secondary schools and 6th Forms in England

This evaluation tool helps us to gain a greater understanding of how our school’s provision of career education and guidance compares to the model of good practice set out in the Gatsby Charitable Foundation’s Good Career Guidance Benchmarks, in comparison to the national picture.
