Careers and Destinations: Teachers

Careers Education, Information, Advice

Aim

To develop students’ knowledge, understanding and skills relevant to life in a rapidly changing world

  • The careers programme is continually being developed and evaluated. We believe that every student should have opportunities to learn about the world of work, employability skills and the personal qualities that are valued in the workplace. This will build self-confidence and raise aspirations. Students can then make informed choices about future careers.
  • The careers programme promotes equal opportunities and challenges stereotypical thinking and attitudes. It helps students, including disadvantaged pupils and pupils with special educational needs to overcome any overt and/or hidden barriers to progress that they may encounter and ensures that all pupils receive appropriate information and guidance, especially at key decision and transition points. It is evaluated and measured against the Gatsby Benchmarks. You can find out more information here:
  • We are working towards full implementation of the Gatsby Benchmarks to ensure that careers provision is of the highest quality for pupils.

The Gatsby 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
