Example Strategic Careers Plan: The Link School (AP)

The Link School is an alternative learning provider working with young learners and their families across the City of Sunderland from KS1 to KS4.

The Careers Leader has agreed to share their strategic careers plan here as an example of practice from the North East.

This is a bespoke example for The Link School. Careers Leaders are encouraged to access BM1 Guidance from the Careers and Enterprise Company and to access the funded Careers Leader Training for further resource and support in developing a comprehensive strategic careers plan.
