NLPC Ltd and Consortium Partner Organisations (Harris Academy Tottenham, Mind in Haringey, Haringey Council) have formed this partnership to deliver the Brighter Futures programme, funded by the Youth Futures Foundation (an independent not-for-profit organisation working to improve employment outcomes for young people from marginalised backgrounds), through its Connected Futures Fund.
About the Project
Brighter Futures Project partners are undertaking an integrated research/consultation on the effectiveness, impact, and the application of the Gatsby Benchmarks (framework for career provisions in schools and colleges, enriched in statutory guidance) to respond to the needs of pupils within the East of Haringey Borough. The work is based on a youth-led/co-designed, stakeholder-inclusive, multi-agency approach focused on early intervention by examining the use, effectiveness, and impact of the Gatsby Benchmarks in schools/colleges, emphasising employment/enterprise offers for young people.
- Schools/Colleges: a review of the implementation of the Gatsby Benchmarks across the schools within the target area, including extensiveness, resource implications, integration to wider regeneration, stakeholder involvement, gaps and good practice;
- Pupils review: a peer-to-peer review of uptake in schools and colleges, such as effectiveness, gaps, good practice, employer engagements, pupil recommendations;
- Stakeholder review: a wider review of stakeholder involvement with the school’s career provision and link to the Gatsby Benchmarks
- Models of good practice.
