Resources for Staff


Effective careers education and guidance helps inspire students and enables them to make informed decisions about their future. It provides them with the information to understand enough about the world of work to know what skills they need to succeed. Research shows that effective careers education leads to improved behaviour, motivation and performance in lessons.

 We all play a vital role in inspiring students to raise their aspirations and to consider careers they hadn’t thought of. Benchmark 4 states:
