Linking the curriculum to the world of work


It is vital that careers education is not seen as additional to the curriculum, but rather forms an integral part of it. At Ryedale School, we aim to ensure that students are made aware of the relevance to future careers of certain topics and skills that they are studying in class.


In every subject classroom, relevant careers posters are displayed. Staff are encouraged to use these posters regularly during lessons. Staff are encouraged to regularly include job and career opportunities within their subject area.


The Gatsby Benchmarks


Here at Ryedale School we work hard to tailor our careers curriculum around the Gatsby Benchmarks. The Gatsby website summarises these benchmarks, and is useful for all teaching staff to be aware of.
