Meeting the Requirements of the new Government Careers Strategy for Colleges

Linking London's second Careers Strategy Forum provided an opportunity for staff involved in designing and delivering a college Careers IAG offer to explore how they can meet the requirements of the Careers Strategy, including the eight Gatsby benchmarks. The Forum offered the opportunity for partners to share issues and concerns and explore how these can be addressed as well as reflect on good practice.

This meeting began with a presentation from Daniel Chow Network Lead (East London), The London Enterprise Adviser Network, Team London, who provided an overview of support provided by the Careers and Enterprise Company to colleges in meeting the Gatsby Benchmarks.

Following this, Andrew Jones, Director, Linking London, led an interactive group session on meeting the requirements of the Careers Strategy, including the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks.

After a networking break, the group discussed how they can better work together to address challenges faced in meeting the requirements.

Jan Orlebar, Careers Adviser, University of Greenwich, then presented to the group on how universities can support colleges in meeting the benchmarks from a University of Greenwich perspective. 

The Forum closed with the group discussing ways that Linking London can work to support colleges going forward. Linking London hold three IAG Practitioner Groups a year which cover careers related information, advice and guidance.
