Gatsby Benchmark Success

We’re thrilled to announce that Aurora Foxes has achieved 100% across all 8 Gatsby Benchmarks for good career guidance! 

The Gatsby Benchmarks are part of the government's careers strategy and serve as a world class framework. At Aurora Foxes, we pledge to maintain our commitment to excellence, ensuring our career guidance strategy is a collaborative college-wide approach, for the benefit of our students' futures.

Achieving 100% across all benchmarks means that Aurora Foxes successfully meets the criteria of:

  • A stable career programme
  • Learning from career and labour market information
  • Addressing the needs of each pupil
  • Linking curriculum learning to careers
  • Encounters with employers and employees
  • Experiences of workplaces
  • Encounters with further and higher education
  • Personal guidance

The career programme at Aurora Foxes has always been strong, but this year, with the dedicated support of Emma Davis, our Careers and Enterprise Coordinator, we have redoubled our efforts to achieve this significant goal.

A huge thank you to Kim Williams, David Bates, Emma Davis, Phillip Corrick, and Lee Dales for their unwavering support and advice.
