At The Careers & Enterprise Company we have always had a focus on areas of need, and we are delighted to support the Opportunity Areas in their drive to support every young person to have access to opportunities, no matter what their background. Having grown up in one of these 12 locations, I am particularly passionate about the impact that engagement with employers can have for these young people. I am grateful to all our partners for the progress to date, for the Cornerstone Employers that have started this movement and the Careers Leaders who work so hard in the schools and colleges to support these 170,000 young people to have access to encounters with the world of work. I look forward to working with you all in the coming years to make the vision for these areas a reality. Christine Hodgson, Chairman

Opportunity Areas Impact Report careersandenterprisecompany.co.uk 4 2 Understanding where to focus in Opportunity Areas Working in partnership with The Gatsby Foundation, we created the Compass online tool and launched it during the 2016/17 academic year 6. The self-evaluation tool is free to use for all schools and enables them to measure the effectiveness of their careers provision against the Gatsby Benchmarks. More than 3,000 schools are now using Compass. In Opportunity Areas, 196 of the 221 schools and colleges have completed Compass in the last year. A school’s self-assessment against the Gatsby Benchmarks is then used as the basis of a school-wide careers plan, supported by the local coordination of their Enterprise Coordinator and strategic advice of their Enterprise Adviser. We will be using Compass to measure the progress we are making against Benchmarks 5 & 6 and ensure we target support across all Opportunity Areas. Opportunity Areas (n=196/221) 1.
