The Gatsby career benchmarks are a framework that schools and colleges can use to develop their careers programme - they are the recommended elements of good practice in career guidance and have been considered when devising our Careers Programme.
The main purpose of the CDI’s Career Development Framework is to clarify the skills, knowledge and attitudes that individuals need to have a positive career. A ‘positive career’ is likely to mean something different to everyone, but it will typically include being happy with the way you spend your time, being able to make a contribution to your community and being able to have a decent standard of living.
The CDI’s Career Development Framework describes the six career development skills that people need to have positive careers and these have been considered when devising our Careers Programme.
