For schools and colleges

GREat Futures

A full programme of activities designed to support your school or college in meeting the requirements of the Government's Careers Framework and Gatsby Benchmarks.

GREat Futures is a two-year scheme of work consisting of a full programme of on and off campus activities.

GREat Futures has been designed to:

    • support your school or college in meeting the requirements of the Government's Careers Framework and Gatsby Benchmarks
    • inform and inspire your students as they progress throughout their Level 3 course and make higher education choices 
    • be used as a standalone HE progression scheme of work or be incorporated into your existing offer.

A sample two-year programme can be downloaded here.

We have made suggestions for when we think it would be most helpful to your students to experience each part of the programme, keeping in mind the UCAS application cycle. However, we are also able to be flexible with delivery in most cases.

Careers Strategy

The Government's Careers Strategy uses the Gatsby Benchmarks to set out a range of requirements that schools and colleges must meet. We have matched all of our activities to these, and this activity can support you with meeting benchmarks 1, 2, 4 and 7.
