Linking the Curriculum to the World of Work
It is vital that careers education is not seen as additional to the curriculum, but rather forms an integral part of it. At George Pindar School, we aim to ensure that students are made aware of the relevance to future careers of the topics and skills that they are studying in lessons. Staff are reminded and encouraged to regularly include job and career opportunities within their subject area.
The Gatsby Benchmarks
At George Pindar School we work hard to focus our careers curriculum around the Gatsby Benchmarks. The Gatsby website summarises these benchmarks, and is useful for all teaching staff to be aware of. A Gatsby Benchmark summary can also be found in the Staff Handbook.
The full Gatsby report can be found here.
