Careers and Aspirations

Leader: Miss S Redford


At Milton, we see the importance in preparing children for the future and inspiring them to start considering how they can apply their talents and interests to a fulfilling career when they are older. In view of this, careers-related learning at Milton Primary is inspiring, explorative and motivating. We create regular opportunities for our pupils to learn about and experience potential careers. We aim to recognise their talents, skillsets  and interests to help them to see how these can be applied to working life. 

Careers and Aspirations Curriculum:

We use the Gatsby Benchmarks at Milton to ensure our children are given the full breadth of career-related opportunities throughout their time here so that they have aspirations that excite them about their future.

​The 8 Gatsby Benchmarks:

  • A stable careers programme 
  • Learning from careers and labour market information  ​
  • Addressing the needs of each student
  • Linking curriculum learning to careers
  • Encounters with employers and employees 
  • Experiences of workplaces 
  • Encounters with further and higher education
  • Personal guidance
