To ensure we are providing a balanced careers programme, we link our careers guidance to the Gatsby Benchmarks which have been explicitly referenced throughout the DfE’s Careers Strategy (December 2017) and the new Statuary Guidance for Careers (January 2018). These 8 benchmarks are outlined below:

  1. A stable careers programme
  2. Learning from labour market information
  3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
  5. Encounters with employers and employees
  6. Experiences of workplaces
  7. Encounters with further and higher education
  8. Personal guidance

Aims of the Careers Programme

The main components of the programme are:

  1. a planned programme of CEAIG for all ages
  2. access to independent and impartial information on opportunities in learning and work
  3. access to individualised careers guidance and support
  4. experience of the workplace to develop key employability skills
  5. To identify and reduce the likelihood of students becoming NEET or dropping out through a variety of interventions.
  6. ensure students have interactions with a variety of colleges, training providers, employers and universities in order to make an informed decision.
