Be Inspired

Between 2015 and 2017, 16 schools and colleges in the North East of England, coordinated by the Local Enterprise Partnership, took part in a pilot programme to test the Good Career Guidance benchmarks. Be inspired and find out what worked for them, what was more difficult and what they  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% reached between six and eight benchmarks.
