Benchmark 1: a stable careers programme



This benchmark provides a foundation for the other seven benchmarks.

• A stable programme to prepare young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life is a core statutory responsibility for schools.
• Inspiring careers and enterprise activities in a stable careers programme improves motivation, attendance and attainment.
• A stable careers programme enables young people to make well-informed decisions about education, training, apprenticeship and employment opportunities.
• It also helps them cope with challenging labour market conditions.
• Delivering social mobility and justice relies on opening doors for all young people.
• A stable careers programme can play a part in promoting social mobility for the benefit of young people, their families and wider society.
