Careers Fair 2019

St Peter’s C of E Aided School’s Careers Fair on Thursday 17th January 2019

Thursday 17th January was our 4th Annual Careers Fair.  I hope you had the opportunity to talk to many of our exhibitors about qualifications, routes, career development and see the links between curriculum learning and careers.

Good career guidance is critical if young people are to raise their aspirations and capitalise on the opportunities available to them.  Every young person needs high-quality career guidance to make informed decisions about their future. Good career guidance is a necessity for delivering technical education reforms and is a vehicle for social justice.

The Good Career Guidance Report, which identified a set of eight benchmarks that schools can use as a framework for improving their careers provision.   These benchmarks are the cornerstone of our careers programme here at St Peter’s.

The eight Gatsby benchmarks of Good Career Guidance

1. Stable careers programme
2. Learning from career and labour market information
3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
5. Encounters with employers and employees
6. Experiences of workplaces
7. Encounters with further and higher education
8. Personal guidance
