About careers education: Impact It is recognised by Ofsted and the DfE that judging the impact of personal development is not practicable in schools. However, we can evaluate the effectiveness of our provision through collecting feedback from students, staff, parents and external stakeholders that relates to specific events and the overall experience at CCC. All former students are invited to join our alumni network and this enables us to share their training and career pathways. We also consider the destinations data each autumn to see where our most recent Y11 are and use all this information to review, adapt and improve our provision each year.

Next review due October 2022.

Investor in Careers: Here at CCC we are committed to providing every opportunity to help our learners, and therefore we are seeking re-assessment of the Investor in Careers award that will recognise the strengths of our careers education programme.

College event feedback:

A very well organised event that kept within the time limits that were given. Great interaction between STEM Ambassadors at the beginning and before the sessions started with a lot of enthusiasm from all on STEM subjects. Some great questions from the students on all three sessions Thank you for the invite! :-)
