Careers – Gatsby

Good career guidance is critical if young people are to raise their aspirations and capitalise on the opportunities available to them. In 2013 Gatsby commissioned Sir John Holman to research what pragmatic actions could improve career guidance in England and subsequently he developed the Good Career Guidance Benchmarks.

 

The eight Gatsby benchmarks of Good Career Guidance:

 

  1. A stable careers programme
  2. Learning from career and 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
