Career - Our Gatsby Benchmarks

The fast-changing world of work puts an ever-greater demand on all of us to support young people in making a successful transition from education to further education, training or employment, helping them to identify and choose career opportunities that are right for them. The government’s Careers Strategy, published in 2017, and statutory guidance for school leaders and school staff, published in 2018, set out the plan for building a high- quality careers system that will help young people to achieve.
