Careers

The Link School prides itself on being a place where learners make a fresh start,

Re-engage in their education and make progress towards their learning and employment goals. It is recognised that an effective Career Education and Guidance (CEG) programme is vital to contributing to the raising of aspirations and enabling learners to make realistic and informed choices about their future employment options.

What is Careers Education and Guidance?

The aim of CEG is to help learners find out about the world of work, develop key employability skills and ensure that they take responsibility for planning their own career pathway. CEG at The Link School takes place within lessons, assemblies and as well as through external visits and guest speakers. Your child will learn how to research different jobs, make decisions and find out what opportunities are open to them once they leave school.
