What are the Gatsby Benchmarks?
Launched from research completed by Sir John Holman in 2013, the Gatsby benchmarks were designed to improve career guidance in England and give a framework that schools can use to develop a good careers programme.
There are eight benchmarks, and each have been developed to support schools in providing their pupils with the best possible careers education, information, advice and guidance.
Below, you can see how Ridgewood Community High School employs each of the Gatsby Benchmarks in our own careers programme.
