Destinations Data: Good practice for schools

This new guidance from the Department for Education (DfE) explains how to use destination data and measures to understand the positions of students two years after leaving Key Stage 4 and help teachers plan, review and improve careers provision and student progression. Destination data is any information that is collected on where a student goes and what they do after leaving school. Destination measures record the number of students who have been in a sustained destination for 6-months to a year after finishing Key Stage 4, which are published in performance tables and used by the DfE as an accountability tool. Destination measures are a useful resource for examining the effects of secondary careers provision on school leavers and meeting the Gatsby Benchmarks. This guide will assist schools in understanding how destination measures can help monitor and evaluate careers provision and tailor advice and guidance to individual students.
