The headline outcome from the Careers and Enterprise Company’s 2023 analysis of 615 schools and colleges in England holding the Quality in Careers Standard shows that:
“Education institutions accredited under the Quality in Careers Standard achieved an average of 5.6 Gatsby Benchmarks in 2021/22. This is one benchmark higher than the previous year.
This is the same as for the schools and colleges that have been in a Careers Hub the longest.
The national average for schools and colleges of 4.9 and for all those in a Careers Hub (5.1).
Schools and colleges with accreditation that were also in Careers Hubs achieved, on average, 5.6
Gatsby Benchmarks (N=507).
Those with accreditation that were not in a Careers Hub achieved, on
average, 5.2 (N=108).”
Dr Barrie Hopson, Chairman of the Quality in Careers Consortium Board, publishes the analysis today – with his added commentary.
