Evaluation of the Careers Leader Training

In 2018, we announced we would offer fully-funded CPD opportunities to 1,300 Careers Leaders, enabled by investment from the Department for Education.

The IES’s independent evaluation of the training, commissioned by The Careers & Enterprise Company, has found that the training was both well-received and had a positive impact. The report found that:

  • Careers Leaders said the training cemented their learning and helped them to identify actions to improve practice
  • Careers leaders said the training helped them develop a new strategic careers or to revise a pre-existing one
  • 92% of Careers Leaders agreed that they had become more effective as a result of the training
  • 96% agreed that it helped them to identify actions to improve their practice
  • 84% said that as a result their institution made better progress towards the Gatsby Benchmarks
  • 91% of Careers Leaders were satisfied or very satisfied with the training
