The Link School supports students to re-engage in education and make progress towards their learning and employment goals. We recognise that an effective Career Education and Guidance (CEG) programme is vital to raising the aspirations of students and enabling them to make realistic and informed choices about their future employment options.

What is Careers Education and Guidance?

The aim of CEG is to enable students to 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 and assemblies as well as through external visits and guest speakers. Year 11 students will also receive 1:1 guidance once a term. Your child will learn how to research different jobs, make decisions and find out what opportunities are open to them once they leave school.
