Abbey College believe that careers guidance is a progressive journey. Our planned careers programme supports students and ensure they receive the relevant careers information, advice and guidance that is suitable for their age and ability by implementation of the 8 Gatsby Career Benchmarks. These Benchmarks were written by Sir John Holman, a former Head Teacher and founder of the National STEM Learning Centre.

Sir John wrote the Good Career Guidance Report after carrying out extensive research.
The 8 benchmarks are a framework for good career guidance developed to support schools in providing students with the best possible careers education, information, advice and guidance.

In the report he identifies what 'good' looks like and outlines a framework of eight benchmarks that schools can use to improve their career guidance system.
