We have developed our approach to support a range of educational providers towards achieving and maintaining the Quality in Careers Standard:
Primary, secondary, independent, special schools and pupil referral units
Training providers, Sixth Form and Further Education Colleges
Common to all education providers seeking to achieve the Standard is:
- Self-assessment leading to the development of an action plan to meet the Quality Standard
- Submission of evidence to meet the outcome indicators
- External assessment by qualified and occupationally competent assessors which includes discussions with staff, governors, partners and students.
In order to ensure that The Quality in Careers Standard is challenging, but at the same time manageable, it is organised into three specific stages covering 8 elements in total which meet The Quality in Careers Standard requirements.
The costs are:
Full Award – £1650
Primary Award – £850
Re assessment – £750
*All costs are plus VAT
