Updated: SEND Gatsby Benchmark Toolkit

Practical information and guidance for schools, special schools and colleges.

Helping schools and colleges prepare and inspire young people for the fast-changing world of work is at the heart of what The Careers & Enterprise Company do, and across the country, there have been countless inspiring examples of schools and colleges doing just that for young people with Special Educational Needs.

“The Gatsby Benchmarks provide a robust and high-quality framework for career guidance. We have already published practical information and guidance for schools and colleges in our SEND Gatsby Benchmark Toolkit, developed in partnership with sector experts Talentino and the Career Development Institute.

I am delighted that we are now publishing an updated and improved version of the SEND Gatsby Toolkit updated by Talentino, our strategic partner for SEND. It contains new case studies from across the country as well as an introductory section which explores the wider context for young people with SEND. It looks at the career challenges and opportunities they face and how we are committed to helping to meet these so they can achieve a positive career and life outcome.”

I have been hugely impressed by the range of different types of provision, including special schools and specialist colleges, that are confidently using the Benchmarks to improve career guidance for their students, and in many cases, they are well on the way to meeting all eight Benchmarks.

I hope that this publication will help practitioners envision how the benchmarks can be put into practice for young people with a wide range of needs. We hope it will be a source of inspiration as you work to ensure all students with SEND receive the very best careers and enterprise education.” – Claudia Harris, CEO, The Careers & Enterprise Company
