The **July 2021 Careers guidance and access for education and training providers** document details the Statutory guidance for governing bodies, school leaders and school staff.

The aim is to make sure that all young people in secondary school get a programme of advice and guidance. It is recommended that schools should use the Gatsby Charitable Foundation’s Benchmarks to develop and improve their careers provision.

See the **Gatsby site** and also the very helpful **Gatsby Benchmark Toolkit** from The Careers and Enterprise Company, note in particular, benchmark 4,

4. Linking curriculum learning to careers |
All teachers should link curriculum learning with careers. For example, STEM subject teachers should highlight the relevance of STEM subjects for a wide range of future career paths. |

**Pages 23 to 29 of the toolkit for school** offers clear guidance on benchmark 4, or see this **separate document**, with just the pages on Benchmark 4. Page 18 includes examples including **Tomorrow’s Engineers**, an organisation I have mentioned previously as part of my **Posters collection**. Tomorrow’s Engineers have a variety of **careers resources**.

MEI (thank you) alerted me to this poster – 100 jobs in STEM!

Further resources:

We are fortunate in Mathematics to have the wonderful **Maths Careers** site with its extensive collection of resources for students from age 11 to adult. Read –** The Gatsby Career Benchmarks – A Maths Perspective**.

From amsp, **Where maths meets the world of work**. The AMSP is working on videos, which showcase the maths in different careers; each video is paired with a resource for the classroom or for use online, so students can get a real taste of what the job may entail. Looking at the first video ‘Try being a Data Detective’ there are versions of each resource available for students of different ages. **Desmos Classroom activities** are available for each version.

Plus Magazine has a whole series of **Career interview articles**.

Check the **BBC Bitesize Careers page**, the information available here includes **Where could your favourite subject take you?** Check out the **Jobs that use Maths**.

With **UCAS** you can explore jobs in a variety of ways, by job family, by subject or by skill; look at **Science, Engineering and Mathematics** for example.

**Good Career Guidance: Reaching the Gatsby Benchmarks**,

From **amsp**, see **Supporting your students’ transition to Advanced Maths**, their **Maths: Opening the door to your future** leaflet explores the post-16 maths qualifications available to students, to help them decide which one is best. Note too the 30 minute presentation, **Why Study Maths**, for students and parents/carers which is about the importance of studying maths post-GCSE. It outlines the options available, and provides compelling reasons for choosing to take an advanced maths qualification. Slides and speaker notes are available to download.

A wealth of free resources are available on Integral, see The** FMSP Legacy Resources Archive**. Access is free via Guest Access.

**Forum Case Studies**, FORUM has published many case studies about employer-linked curriculum projects.
