Careers Wales Mark / Gatsby Award

Ysgol Ty Coch successfully achieved the Careers Wales Quality Mark  in November 2014. The Quality Mark  was developed following the introduction  of the framework for Careers and the World of Work.  

In relation to the Careers Wales Mark and continuous quality improvement, there was  an audit against the CWW framework and self assessment according  to  the new Estyn framework was undertaken. Careers Wales supported Ysgol Ty Coch in this audit. An Action Plan for CWW was created, and the evidence was provided. The plan was implemented and a review of the action plan/ development plan and self assessment was undertaken. The progress  against the action plan and the impact of this on the teaching and learning of   Careers and the World of Work was measured, with a range of evidence being produced.

We have renewed our  Quality Mark for 2020 and achieved the Gatsby Award

Careers and Work Related Education  is now part of the new curriculum from 3-16 and continued in 6 form at Ysgol Ty Coch. It is being embedded in the context booklets, and we are undertaking an audit of the 17 points  to ensure coverage and progression.
