As part of continuing education, schools need to provide Independent Advice and Guidance (IAG) to their students to aid them in understanding their options when they leave school.
Adele Miller, Claire Barnett and Angela Fernandez are our designated IAG Support / Employment Support Coordinators.
They are here to support students and parents with education and social destinations post Linwood School.
They are based at Linwood Campus but work across all sites, including Springwood, Summerwood and CHI.
Adele is currently on maternity leave. If you wish to discuss your child’s future, please contact Claire at:
