About Compass

Compass is a free tool for schools and colleges in England, that quickly and easily helps you to evaluate your careers activity against the eight benchmarks of best practice – known as the Gatsby Benchmarks.

The tool was built in partnership with the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, to help you easily discover your strengths and find areas for improvement. Once completed, the tool will provide you with a confidential report and resources to help you achieve each benchmark.
