Investors in Careers Award!

December 20, 2018

The Link School are proud to announce that they have gained the Investors in Careers Award. Strengths outlined in the report show:

Student progress is monitored very well and each student follows a bespoke programme to meet their needs, and help them fulfil their aspirations for the future. The school has developed excellent contacts with other providers which enables them to offer a wide array of opportunities to students.

The commitment to the careers programme was evident throughout the assessment and the school is to be commended for the amount of time resources and staffing given to ensure the best possible post 16 outcomes for students. This is reflected in the CPD opportunities open to staff. Staff believed that they were well equipped with the knowledge and skills required to ensure the careers programme was a success, and were all very enthused about, and committed to their roles.

The students spoken to at the assessment confirmed that they believed that they had been given every opportunity to consider and explore their options for the future, had grown in confidence and had raised their aspirations. They were very complimentary of all the support they had received and were optimistic about their futures.
