Triage training framework

How is using triage an effective approach to supporting Personal Guidance:

1. It distributes responsibility for careers more widely than the traditional careers team. Staff have a more extensive skills set and knowledge about careers and the Gatsby Benchmarks as well as being more cognisant of student needs, how to help students and to signpost/refer as necessary.

2. It ensures that students with issues were picked up early and signposted to the most appropriate support.

3. Students have access to ongoing support rather than just a one-off intervention.

4. Preparation and follow-up were integrated within the programme so students were better prepared and derived greater benefit from personal guidance.
