Quality in Careers Standard - three free events this March

data training 3.jpg

The Department for Education is funding three events this March for school leaders interested in finding out more about the Quality in Careers Standards.

Each event will feature the following: 

  • A mainstream secondary school
  • A special school
  • A sixth form college/FE college.  

It will offer you the chance to meet face-to-face with at least five licensed awarding bodies for the Quality in Careers Standard. 

You will also get the chance to discuss their ‘offer’ with each of them – this includes their approach to the Quality in Careers journey of development, building on your ‘compass’ self-assessment against the Gatsby Benchmarks, through to external assessment and national accreditation under the Quality in Careers Standard. 

Each of the three events will also feature an input by Ryan Gibson who led the north east pilot on implementing the Gatsby Benchmarks and is now a member of our Quality in Careers Consortium Board. 

All events will be chaired by quality in careers director Paul Chubb MBE. Details of the school and college leaders speaking at each event are as follows:
