Using the Gatsby Benchmarks to provide high quality Careers Education.

The Gatsby Benchmarks are a framework of eight guidelines about what makes the best careers provision in schools and colleges. At Morecambe Bay Academy we have built our careers education and guidance strategy around them.

Our Careers curriculum provides pupils at different stages in their school career with relevant information to help them make informed choices about options, careers, colleges, apprenticeships, university, and the world of work. This includes up to date labour market information.

The school has a careers enterprise co-ordinator from the company Capgemini to ensure careers provision is up to date for employers and advice and guidance is impartial and informative for all. We also benefit from a full time Careers Advisor.
