New careers guidance tool

01 November 2016

The Careers & Enterprise Company, in partnership with The Gatsby Foundation, has launched Compass, a new online tool for schools to evaluate and monitor improvements in their careers education against eight benchmarks.

The tool, which is supported by ASCL, gives schools an immediate read-out on how they compare to the benchmarks so they can celebrate successes and focus resources on the areas of their careers programmes that need the most development.

The benchmarks were developed on behalf of Gatsby by Sir John Holman, Emeritus Professor at the University of York and former Headteacher. Sir John said: “The Compass tool will help place good career guidance within reach of all young people.”
