Careers and Enterprise

 

Some children know what they want to be when they grow up and others learn along the way. The opportunities given to them every day to find their path may be subtle or glaringly obvious but we are all mentors to them in some way.

 

Did you know GridMaker now contains criteria from the new Ofsted framework? 

Plus, it's perfect for capturing evidence for the new judgement on pupils' "Personal Development".

If you’re interested - have read of our blog - or give me a call to discuss it.

I'd love to show you exactly how SMSC GridMaker can help to gather evidence of SMSC, British Values and Personal Development across your curriculum.

Take a look at our Newsletter Grid and then hit the button below to request a free trial or give me a call for an over the phone demonstration.
