What are the Gatsby Benchmarks?

The Gatsby Benchmarks are a framework of 8 guidelines that define the best careers provision in secondary schools. They are:

  1. A stable careers programme
  2. Learning from labour market information
  3. Addressing the needs of every 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
Why are they important?

The Gatsby Benchmarks have a key role in:

  • Raising young people’s aspirations and promoting access to all career pathways
  • Enabling all young people to develop the skills and outlook they need to achieve career wellbeing, including adaptability and resilience
  • Underpinning the Department for Education guidance to schools on meeting their statutory responsibility for careers guidance
Important websites: Unifrog

Unifrog is a comprehensive digital platform which allows schools and colleges to simplify and improve careers guidance. The platform caters for all students helping them to make more informed decisions about future study and career options at the right time and in good time.
