Careers Guidance at Wright Robinson College

At Wright Robinson we support students to realise their potential. We recognise that an effective Career Education and Guidance programme is vital to raising the aspirations of students and enabling them to make realistic and informed choices about their future employment options.

The Government’s new Careers Strategy published in 2017 set out the plan for building a high quality careers system that will help young people to succeed. The Gatsby Benchmarks define all the elements of an excellent careers program. We are working towards achieving all 8 Gatsby Benchmarks by 2020.
