Careers & Employability
At Haydon school, we recognise the significance of meaningful and comprehensive careers education, which provides all our students with the knowledge and the skills to understand the opportunities and pathways available to them.
Haydon School’s careers provision aims to enable students to make well informed, realistic choices about their future, in line with the Gatsby Benchmarks and in compliance with the Baker Clause which came into force January 2018.

How do we measure impact?
We measure and assess the impact of our careers programme on pupils through an annual careers evaluation impact report produced by an independent third party from the Education Development Trust.
Additionally, we measure the impact through student and parent surveys, individual student feedback on each career one-to-one session that they participate in, and evaluation forms completed by participants after career events and options evenings.
