Young people can find out what their options are at the town hall event

Year 11 pupils at Bolton’s schools and academies are invited to an event on Monday, October 8, to look into their future studying and career options.

 

Pupils, parents and carers can attend the Futures4me event to take a look at what courses and training opportunities Bolton’s colleges, sixth forms and work-based learning providers have to offer.

 

There will also be a range of employers providing information about different job sectors, with some employers offering apprenticeships. 

 

Employers include Bolton NHS Foundation Trust, MBDA, the Institution of Civil Engineers and Virgin Active Health Clubs.

 

Personal advisers from the Connexions service will be on hand to meet pupils and parents, and explain more about the career options open to them. 

 

Young people who left school last year who are not yet in employment, education or training are also welcome to attend.

 

More than 1500 people attended last year’s event and it will once again take place in the Festival Hall in Bolton Town Hall, from 3pm until 7.30pm.

 

Councillor Kevin McKeon, Bolton Council’s Cabinet Member for Schools, said: “In this competitive jobs market, it’s more important than ever that young people get good careers advice and information about all the options available to them once they leave school.

 

“Thousands of people who were uncertain about their career path or the routes to achieving it have already benefited from this annual event and I urge young people to come along and see what is on offer for them - the event really helps put them in touch with all the right people who can help get them on the right career track.”

 

Students, parents and carers interested in attending the even can just turn up on the day.
