Every school or college should appoint a named person to the role of Careers Leader to lead the careers programme and the strategic careers plan.

As the school or college’s designated Careers Leader you should be ensuring, among other things, that:

  • The school has a good careers programme that meets the expectations set out in the Gatsby Benchmarks.
  • The school has published on its website details of its careers programme and arrangements for providers of technical education or apprenticeships to talk to pupils.
  • The destinations of young people from the school are tracked and that this information is used to improve the effectiveness of the school’s careers programme.
