Gatsby Benchmarks


Gatsby Benchmarks


The Careers Programme at LHS is designed to meet the needs of our pupils. It is differentiated and personalised to ensure progression through activities that are appropriate to pupils’ stage of career learning, planning and development. It is informed by the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks, namely:

  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
