Gatsby Benchmarks

Effective career guidance is crucial for every young person to navigate their future with confidence.

In 2013, Sir John Holman, commissioned by Gatsby, outlined what exemplary career guidance in England should look like, resulting in the Good Career Guidance Report. The report introduced eight Gatsby Benchmarks, serving as a blueprint for world-class career provision. These Benchmarks have been integrated into the Government's Careers Strategy, becoming statutory guidance for schools and colleges. Additionally, The Careers & Enterprise Company now supports their implementation in education through a national network of assistance, resources, and targeted funding.
