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:

  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

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.
