Careers Education

Careers education involves both the careers programme and careers taught within the curriculum.

The careers programme sets out the activities and opportunities for our young people from Year 7 to Year 11 across each term.

What are the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks?

As part of the statutory careers requirements, every school should aim to meet the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks and we are working towards achieving 100%. They define what world class careers provision in education looks like and provide a clear framework for organising the careers provision in schools or colleges and are integral in preparing young people for the transition between school and post-16.

The 8 benchmarks 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

Further detailed information on each benchmark can be found at
