Career Mark

Belvoir is working towards the national Quality in Careers Standard by Complete Careers - Career Mark in the Academic year 2021-2022. Career Mark recognises the quality of the independent and impartial guidance we offer, ensuring our students leave with the confidence and skills required to enter the world of work and further/higher education. Career Mark Accreditation demonstrates to all our stakeholders, including Ofsted that we are providing an efficient and effective careers programme through:

Management: The effectiveness of our systems for planning, managing and integrating the whole programme

Guidance: The effectiveness of an integrated programme of advice, guidance and support

Curriculum: The effectiveness of our curriculum to supports the development of learners’ knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes

Information: The accessibility, relevance, importance and effectiveness of information, the acquisition of skills to research and evaluate allowing for well informed and realistic career decisions.

The Academy bases our careers programme on the CDI framework for Career, Employability and Enterprise education, alongside the Department for Education’s Careers guidance and access for education and training providers document (Oct 2018) and the Gatsby Benchmarks

Measuring the Impact of the Academy's Careers Programme

Feedback on the Academy's Careers Programme is collected through regular student evaluation and parent surveys as well as through focus groups following any careers event or workshop.  The effectiveness of the programme is reflected in the Post 16 destination reports sent to Leicestershire County Council.
