Creating a new careers activity
To start creating careers activities for your pupils, click on Plans > Create new activity in the navigation bar:
A pop-up box will ask you to choose whether the new activity is for Gatsby Benchmark 1 or Gatsby Benchmarks 2-8. Choose the correct one for your activity, the academic year you want to create the activity for, and then click on ‘Create activity’:
You will next see a new activity form. Give your activity a name, and select a main Benchmark category for the activity from the dropdown list: these two fields are mandatory when creating a new activity. Try to add as many details as you can; if you need to save your activity and fill in the rest of the details later, that’s fine:
Adding pupils to your activity is simple: in the ‘Add groups or individuals to your activity’ section, use the checkbox filters to search for a group, or find individuals using the search box below.
Once you’ve added your new activity details, click on ‘Save activity to plan’:
Your activity will then be saved and will contribute to your institution’s Gatsby Benchmark scores. It will also be listed on the individual profiles of the pupils you have selected.
