As we approach half term, we’d like to share some of our Spring term offerings.

We’ve been busy, gathering careers related resources, live chat offers, video footage, etc…

All are freely available to schools and students, to support your careers plan during this challenging time.


Year 11 Transitions Series. 

Especially developed to support Year 11 (and Year 13) transition. A series of pre-recorded material and live Q&A scheduled from 22nd February.

We answer questions such as…

What do employers look for when recruiting a young person?

What do employers look for in CV’s and applications?

How to prepare for an online interview

How to ace the apprenticeship application process.

Get in touch for timely downloads and live Q&A access throughout the week and beyond.


Connecting Careers to the Curriculum

Short video clips aimed at those students selecting GCSE options this term. Hear from individual business volunteers sharing their passion for a particular subject and how that subject has influenced their career choices and job roles.



Careers Week – 1st to 5th March

To promote and support this week of activity we are gathering and sharing quotes from employers. They have all answered the question – What do you look for when you are recruiting a young person/school leaver?

Look out for these handy hints and tips throughout the week.


We have an ever-growing list of business volunteers, don’t forget to get in touch if you have a particular employer request we might be able to help with. 


Best wishes – from The Link Team
