Gatsby Foundation Benchmarks

Every Young person needs high quality career guidance to make informed decisions about their future. Good career guidance is a necessity for delivering technical education reforms and is a vehicle for social justice: those young people without social capital or home support suffer most from poor career guidance.

The Gatsby Benchmarks are a framework that defines what makes the best careers provision in schools and colleges.

The eight Gatsby benchmarks of Good Career Guidance are:

A stable careers programme
Learning from career and labour market information
Addressing the needs of each pupil
Linking curriculum learning to careers
Encounters with employers and employees
Experiences of workplaces
Encounters with further and higher education
Personal guidance

Below is the evaluation of the Cedar Mount Academy offer, a picture we are working to improve day-on-day, with the ultimate goal of having a strong Grading in each of the Gatsby Benchmarks by the end of the Academic year 2020.
