Recently the Success at School team met with the Department for Education to demo our site and show how our free platform is helping schools to meet their statutory careers guidance and RPA obligations.
We're pleased to say that the DfE were impressed with what they saw and have written us a very encouraging letter of support, singling out our ability to offer bespoke, secure careers websites to schools as a unique feature.
Success at School was built to support schools, we developed our own 'SCORED' system to test our content to make sure that we always deliver on that commitment, so we were especially pleased to hear that the work we do continues to align with the Governement's Inspiration Vision and policies.
To find out more about how Success at School helps schools and Local Authorities to deliver independent careers advice in the classroom - checked out our SCORED system presentation here.
And here's some of what the DfE said about us...
"It is clear that successatschool.org supports the aims set out in the statutory guidance. The ability for schools to personalise the site, upload student users securely and add bespoke content seamlessly is a useful aspect. The subject guides, career zones and interviews with a range of inspiring people are informative tools. They encourage students to recognise their core skills and build a skills passport that can track the development of employability skills such as leadership, communication and teamwork. Another valuable feature is the ability for schools to monitor progress using data on young people’s work preparation activity throughout their time at school. The involvement of local and national employers in the site will also ensure that pupils gain a real life view of the workplace – which is the central theme to the Government’s policy on careers guidance. I believe that schools will find your site very helpful when considering how to meet their duty to secure independent careers guidance. "
