Gatsby Benchmarks video series free to schools and colleges

checklist A series of YouTube videos have been produced for schools and colleges as part of a drive to improve careers education and equip students with the knowledge and experience they need to succeed in the world of work.

East Midlands local enterprise partnership D2N2 have teamed up with DANCOP (Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire Collaborative Outreach Programme) to highlight the key aspects of each of the eight Gatsby Benchmarks, a requirement of the current Careers Strategy for schools and colleges in England, showcasing examples of good practice from local providers.

Nine videos in total have been produced – one for each benchmark and an additional video focusing on improving career guidance for students with additional educational needs. These videos add extra insight into the different approaches that local schools and colleges can take to achieve each standard and should provide schools with the extra support they need to offer a ‘gold standard’ careers programme to all students.
