We recognise the value of personal guidance and expect all schools to work towards meeting the eight Gatsby Career Benchmarks by the end of 2020. The benchmark on personal guidance advises that all young people should have a careers interview by the age of 16, and the opportunity for one further such interview by age 18.</p><p>To target support for those who need it most, the government has announced £2.5 million of funding for new innovative, cost effective models, for delivering personal careers guidance in schools and colleges. The funding will be used for personal guidance for young people, the training and ongoing continuing professional development of career guidance professionals and the development of a pipeline of qualified career guidance professionals for the future.</p>

However, an application submitted earlier may result in a shortfall in the applicant’s qualifying period when they later apply for settlement.</p><p>The immigration rules allow us to add no more than 28 days to the standard grant of leave to remain to account for the days lost upon submission. Applicants are advised when applying not to make any non-urgent international travel arrangements until their passports or travel documents are returned to them, followed by their Biometric Residence Permit if their application is successful.</p><p>Applicants can request the urgent withdrawal of their application for international travel.
