We are proud to have achieved the following nationally recognised awards:


  • The Quality in Careers Standard


The Quality in Careers Standard is the single national quality award for careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) in secondary and special schools, colleges and work-based learning.

All state-funded secondary and special schools, academies, sixth form colleges and further education colleges are “strongly recommended” by the Department for Education in its January 2023 updated Statutory Guidance to work towards, achieve, and maintain this national Standard as part of its careers strategy.

The Standard is fully aligned with the Gatsby Benchmarks for “Good Career Guidance” and complies with the DfE’s Statutory Guidance.

As England’s dedicated national quality award, the Quality in Careers Standard – through external assessment – uniquely accredits the four components of the CEIAG:

  1. Careers Education
  2. Careers Information
  3. Careers Advice
  4. Careers Guidance
