In January 2018 the DfE published the new statutory guidance for Career Guidance in schools.  The purpose to make sure that all young people in secondary school get a programme of advice and guidance that is stable, structured and delivered by qualified and experienced individuals. This statutory guidance has been restructured around the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks.

The CEIAG Coordinator/Adviser along with the Lancashire Enterprise Advisor, SLT, curriculum leaders, external providers, and employers strive for continuous improvement and build on each benchmark further.

The school is strong and committed to all 8 Benchmarks:

  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. Experience of workplaces
  7. Encounters with further and higher education
  8. Personal Guidance
