Compass+ has superseded Compass and Tracker and is the CEC’s central evaluation tool that Enterprise Coordinators and Enterprise Advisers should encourage all schools to use. Compass provides schools with a centralised digital tool to evaluate their careers provision against the Gatsby Benchmarks. This page provides you with some information about the evaluation tool questions that are asked, useful videos, documents and FAQs.

The Compass evaluation is one form of impact measurement that helps to identify progress and gaps in careers provision, which is valuable for engaging colleagues and making improvements. However, stakeholder feedback and mapping progress against your school/college career strategy’s aims and objectives delve deeper and further. Utilise the resources on our evaluation toolkit and surveys page below.
