Gatsby Benchmarks

St Andrew’s College Cambridge aims for the best possible practice for our Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programme, which is the national quality award for CEIAG in secondary schools, colleges and work-based learning. As such, we look to the Gatsby Benchmarks as a way to help us deliver excellence.   The eight benchmarks we are striving to achieve are:

  • A stable careers programme 
  • Learning from career and labour market information 
  • Addressing the needs of each pupil 
  • Linking curriculum learning to careers 
  • Encounters with employers and employees 
  • Experiences of workplaces 
  • Encounters with further and higher education 
  • Personal guidance
