The Gatsby Benchmarks

What are the Gatsby Benchmarks?

The Gatsby Benchmarks are a framework of eight guidelines that define the best careers provision for schools and colleges. The government’s careers strategy is built around them and they offer a great place to start when we are planning our programme and a framework to review it. 

  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

How we meet the Gatsby Benchmarks?

Our programme, which is mapped against the Gatsby Benchmark is available for you to read here

We review the programme through Compass + Evaluation to benchmark our provision against the eight Gatsby benchmarks. We also analyse our destination data, conduct an aspirations and ambitions survey,  monitor Unifrog usage and gain feedback on events and interventions through student questionnaires.
