Gatsby Benchmarks for Colleges
Gatsby Benchmarks- Special Educational Needs
“All learners at Wilberforce College are entitled to access free and impartial careers information, advice and guidance that is specific to their individual needs. This forms part of Gatsby Benchmark 8- Personal Guidance– “Every pupil should have opportunities for guidance interviews with a careers adviser, who could be internal (a member of school staff) or external, provided they are trained to an appropriate level. These should be available whenever significant study or career choices are being made. They should be expected for all pupils but should be timed to meet their individual needs.”
Our college Careers Adviser, Sarah Didsbury, is qualified in Level 6 Careers Guidance and Development, and Level 6 Careers Leadership. As a member of the Career Development Institute she adheres to the CDI Code of Conduct and ensures that all students are provided with the opportunity to benefit from a one-to-one personal guidance interview by the end of their study programme with the college. Opportunities are made available for students to book pre-scheduled appointments, and to attend by drop-in, as advertised in the Careers Hub (A106).
