The Department for Education's careers strategy was published in December 2017, setting out a series of measures to be implemented during 2018-20 to improve careers guidance in England.

Alongside the strategy, the DfE published accompanying statutory guidance that provided more details on how schools are expected to deliver the new expectations. These expectations included:

The government’s new careers strategy set out a plan for building a high-quality careers system that will help young people to achieve. The Gatsby Benchmarks are a key measure of the effectiveness of career guidance and provision – Delta Academies Trust is committed to achieving all eight benchmarks;

  1. A 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 

For an overview of how we and our CEIAG partners embed the 8 benchmarks into our Careers Programme, please see the attached documents below



Our careers programme is designed to enable our students to transition through various stages of their career development using the careers plan as a working document to be evaluated and revised as necessary by SLT and School Governors. We are committed to adhering to and developing the careers provision in school by ensuring that we have a careers plan that is fluid. Follow the link to view our careers programme
