As part of continuing education, schools need to provide independent advice and guidance to their students to aid them in understanding their options when they leave school.
Adele Miller and her assistant, Becky Washbrook, are Linwood’s designated Independent Advice and Guidance (IAG) Support / Employment Support Coordinators. They work across all sites, including Springwood, Summerwood and CHI, supporting students and parents with education and social destinations post Linwood School. They are based at Linwood School but allocate time at Linwood’s other campuses.
If you wish to discuss your child’s future, please contact Adele or Becky at:

Work Experience at Linwood School is an important part of the students preparation for adulthood. Currently, Linwood students have the opportunities to participate in internal work experience. However, by Autumn 2018 we hope that students will have the opportunity to participate in individual external work experiences. Each campus currently organises work experience opportunities (internal and external) with external work experience being based on volunteering opportunities as a class group. If you would like more information about each class’ work experience opportunities please contact the relevant campus.
Are you able to help? As a school we like to provide a variety of opportunities for our students, which includes input from employers. If you feel that you would be able to offer a work experience opportunity or would be happy to speak to students about what your company / job is, please contact Adele Miller to discuss.
Some volunteer positions require the individual to be 18 or over – for more information about how to access volunteering opportunities, please contact Adele Miller to discuss.
