Career Mark uses five standards to assess the Quality in Careers Standard:
Measures the effectiveness of your systems for planning, managing and integrating CEIAG
Measures the effectiveness of an integrated programme of advice, guidance and support
Measures how effectively your curriculum supports the development of learners’ knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes
Measures the accessibility, relevance, importance and effectiveness of information, the acquisition of skills to research and evaluate to be able to make well informed and realistic career decisions
Evaluates learners’ knowledge, competence and attitudes towards career planning. For each standard there are a number of 'assessment indicators', which clearly present that standard in its component parts, making it easy for you to identify what's required.
