Gatsby Benchmarks

DA POP-UP is informed by LMI and has been developed to help schools and colleges meet the Gatsby Benchmarks which are used as a tool by Ofsted inspectors when assessing the careers education information advice and guidance (CEIAG) offer of a given school or college. Here’s how DA POP-UP can help your school.

  • 2. Learning from career & labour market information
    DA-POP was developed using Labour Market Information and so as well as technical skills and knowledge, also provides participants with insight into the range of roles available; information on routes into and subsequent career progression. Our industry trainers are also able to provide answers on the day to day realities and demands of working in the sector.
  • 3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
    DA POP-UP welcomes students from all backgrounds and with a range of career goals. So that the project team ticks, we look for students with interests in and/or who show technical, research, marketing and project management/leadership skills. There’s something for every type of student and we continue to respond to that throughout the programme.
  • 4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
    The programme involves all aspects of project management including business planning, budgeting, research, report writing, script-writing, filming and editing. All of these elements can be taken back to the subject classroom and linked to curriculum so that learning is more relatable and enjoyable for students.
  • 5. Encounters with employers and employees
    All DA POP-UP trainers are current practitioners from the creative and digital industry, and so bring their own expertise and insight to the students in a series of meaningful encounters over the 5 days. The programme also lends itself to further external employer support where local businesses tied to the school can be invited in to deliver a masterclass sessions/talk on any range of related topics.
  • 6. Experience of workplaces
    DA POP-UP creates an agency environment within a school. The agency takes students out of their school mode - in fact they become employees over the 5 day programme rather than students and experience a real working environment.
