Pedagogy informed 

 

Our careers provision is based on the Gatsby Benchmarks as recommended in the DfE’s Careers Strategy (December 2017) and the Statutory Guidance for Careers (January 2018). The 8 benchmarks are outlined below: 

 

  1. A stable careers programme
  2. Learning from labour market information
  3. Addressing the needs of each 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

 

Learner and parent centred 

 

Careers information is available via Landgate website and progress towards the Gatsby benchmarks is recorded on Compass. 

Progress is captured and reviewed termly

Careers and transition will be a focus during annual reviews, parent progress evenings and through regular Class Dojo updates.
