Education Liaison

Deciding what to study and learning what options are available can be really confusing for young people. Our Education Liaison activities make the choice a lot easier for High School pupils and College students.

We are very proud at Hugh Baird College of our specialist programme of activities designed to equip young people, teachers and advisers with relevant and up-to-date careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) on both Further Education and Higher Education opportunities.

Our work with schools and colleges is designed to assist careers advisors and help students and their key influencers navigate their way through the, sometimes challenging, education landscape. Our activities are delivered at Hugh Baird College, in schools/colleges, or virtually.

They are designed to be interactive and enjoyable with lots of opportunities to meet with current students and academic staff. We hope you find this information useful in your role and our team look forward to working with you and your students in the coming year.

Gatsby Benchmarks

In January 2018 the Government released a set of careers guidance benchmarks to ensure high quality and aspirational careers advice and guidance was available to all students. The 'Gatsby Benchmarks' outline the expected standards for quality careers guidance:

  1. A stable careers programme
  2. Learning from career and labour market information
  3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
  5. Encounters with employers and employees
  6. Experiences of workplaces
  7. Encounters with further and higher education
  8. Personal guidance

To find out how Hugh Baird College can support you in achieving these benchmarks, download our Education Liaison Guide which maps each of our Education Liaison activities to a Gatsby Benchmark.
