Changes in Careers Guidance - what teachers should know

The Gatsby Benchmarks are a framework of 8 guidelines that represent the core dimensions of good careers and Work-Related Learning provision.

They were first detailed in the 'Good Careers Guidance' report Jan 2018 and have subsequently been used to shape the recent DfE Statutory Careers Guidance, with the expectation that schools and colleges will immediately deliver against them. 

The eight benchmarks are:

  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
