Labour Market Information and the Gatsby Benchmarks

Woodkirk Academy is required to meet the statutory requirements for careers education, known as the Gatsby Benchmarks.  Click here for further information.

We track each individual student to ensure they are receiving the benefit of external experiences, advice and inspiration.  We arrange a wide and varied programme of enrichment opportunities for students to actively participate in, both in and out of school.  This includes access to employer activities and experiences, trips to university campuses and visits to local careers based events.  Examples of such activities include mock interviews, trips to local law courts, visits to engineering firms and trips to university halls.  We also arrange for visiting speakers to attend lessons to enrich the students' careers guidance through the curriculum.

Our dedicated Careers Team keep abreast of changes to Labour Market Information (both regionally and nationally) to ensure that our students have access to up to date information, enabling them to make fully informed and considered choices.  Click here to view a summary of the most recent changes to Labour Market Information.  Please click here to see up to date Labour Market Information by region (statistics correct as at January 2019).
