We work in partnership with the Heart of the South West Careers Hub and Avanti Park School are implementing and evaluated on the Gatsby Foundation’s eight Career Benchmarks of good practice:

The 8 Gatsby Benchmarks are: 

  1. A stable careers programme ​
  2. Learning from careers and labour market information  ​
  3. Addressing the needs of each student
  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
  5. Encounters with employers and employees
  6. Experiences of workplaces
  7. Encounters with further and higher education
  8. Personal guidance

We also have a business Enterprise Adviser, Karen de Groot, from Wessex Water who is linked to our school and offers support from a business perspective on our careers curriculum.

Our Careers Link Governor is Carolyn Dickenson

The next Careers review is due in July 2022.
