    Cross-curricular Links

    CEG pervades all cross curricular activities because students have the opportunity to develop the three strands; self development, careers exploration and careers management. These strands are intertwined with the key skills which are essential as preparation for adult learning. Team work based activities such as the Public Speaking Day help reinforce and develop the key skills such as communication, problem solving and working with other people.

    The UK Government operates a free, impartial careers helpline for advice and guidance. Call 0800 100 900 to speak to an adviser (8am to 10pm, 7 days a week). Calls are free from landlines and most mobile numbers.
