Government Guidelines for Schools and Colleges

The government aims for all schools and colleges to meet the Gatsby Benchmarks by 2020. These benchmarks are a framework of eight guidelines that define best practice careers provision in schools and colleges.

From September 2018, the government outlined that schools and colleges should publish the following information about their careers programme:

The name, email address and telephone number of the school’s Careers Leader.

A summary of the careers programme, including details of how pupils, parents, teachers and employers may access information about the careers programme.

How the school measures and assesses the impact of the careers programme on pupils.

The date of the school’s next review of the information published.
