The government’s new (2017) careers strategy, has at its heart four themes, the first of which is ensuring a ‘high-quality careers programme’ in all schools and colleges. This is to be achieved via the eight Gatsby benchmarks, each of which relate to an area of school activity, and define excellence in that area:
The first six benchmarks can, in some way, be achieved by input by employers and businesses. Other parts of the strategy include making employers an integral part of the guidance strategy, ensuring people can benefit from tailored support (i.e. individual careers guidance and mentoring, for example, by an employer) and making the most of Labour Market Information. You can see from above that employers will play a huge part in schools achieving the eight benchmarks and sustaining a world class careers programme.

To complement our programme of employer engagement encounters, we also invite ex-students back to the Academy to talk about their careers. We would love to build on our links to past pupils.
