Gatsby Benchmark Resources

Gatsby Benchmark 5

Encounters with employers and employees - Every pupil should have multiple opportunities to learn from employers about work, employment and the skills that are valued in the workplace. This can be through a range of enrichment activities including visiting speakers, mentoring and enterprise schemes.

Students should experience multiple meaningful encounters with employers that measurably develop relevant knowledge, skills and behaviours that improve their ability to make aspirational and informed decisions, make effective transitions and develop their 'career readiness'.
