Gatsby Benchmarks

Gatsby Benchmarks Careers Plan

The eight benchmarks are a framework for good career guidance developed to support schools in providing students with the best possible careers education, information, advice, and guidance.

They were established as part of Sir John Holman’s research into what pragmatic actions could improve career guidance in England, and lay out what a world-class career guidance system looks like. The Benchmarks form part of the careers strategy, launched December 2017.

Here at Longridge High School we provide a number of opportunities throughout Years 7 – 11 for pupils to gain the knowledge and understanding needed with regards to career and the workplace through a variety of careers based activities and experiences.
