 Careers Statutory Guidance 2022

Gatsby Benchmarks

All schools careers programmes now have to achieve eight Gatsby Benchmarks which were introduced after a report written by Sir John Holman in 2014 commissioned by the Rowntree Foundation expressed serious concerns about the quality of delivery of careers advice, information and guidance in schools. One of the recommendations of the report was that all schools should have a qualified careers leader. Teresa Crowley successfully passed the course in July 2019 and is now a Level 6 Accredited Careers Leader.
