Be Inspired

A number of schools and colleges in the North East of England, coordinated by the Local Enterprise Partnership, have taken part in a pilot programme, testing the Good Career Guidance benchmarks. Be inspired and find out what worked for them, what was more difficult and what they have learnt along the way.

In 2015, 50% of the schools and colleges in the pilot achieved no benchmarks, but after two years of hard work over 85% now reach between six and eight benchmarks.
