Good Career Guidance: CDC adds to Perspectives from the Special Education Needs and Disability Sector

This guidance collates a set of expert perspectives from leading practitioners from national SEND organisations, on making the Gatsby Benchmark for Good Career Guidance available for all students.

Our Director, Dame Christine Lenehan, contributed to the guidance. She outlined how the benchmark can be employed to raise career aspirations for disabled students and those with SEN, which is vital to overcome barriers they may face when securing employment. 

"Good careers advice and guidance can make a huge difference to the lives of students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Our young people want to fulfil their ambitions and be contributing members of their community."
