The American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote: “life is a journey, not a destination”, this is unquestionably true and we should always remind our students of this. Too often they are forced to focus on their exam results as the perceived destination, which is quite ironic as for this year and possibly next ‘Destinations’ will matter more than exam results. Is your school ready for what’s to come?
We all know that reaching every student is something that can be very challenging. Ensuring that all students have a destination post-16 or 18 is one of the real tangible accountability measures that a Careers Leader/School has. Everyone aims for a zero NEET figure but not everyone is able to achieve it.
