Secondary: Benchmark 5

Encounters with employers and employees

Preparing for the world of work

Welcome to our benchmark 5 toolkit. We are wanting to bring together resources, advice and guidance on how to make progress towards achieving benchmark 5 in your school or college.

Benchmark 5 focuses on the importance of every pupil having multiple opportunities to learn from employers about work, employment and the skills that are valued in the workplace.

This can be through a range of enrichment opportunities including visiting speakers, mentoring and enterprise schemes.
