Year 11 pupils at Bolton’s schools and academies are invited to an event on October 10 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 the army, the navy, the RAF, the NHS, a barrister and a pharmacist.

Personal advisors from the Connexions service will be on hand to meet pupils and parents, and explain more about the area wide prospectus, available via the link on the right hand side.

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

The event will take place in the Festival Hall in Bolton Town Hall from 2.30pm until 7.30pm.

Councillor Nick Peel, Bolton Council’s Executive Member for Children’s Services, said: “It is more important than ever that young people are fully aware of the range of options available to them once they leave school, and this event will make sure they can get in touch with all the right people.

“I would encourage any young people who are unsure of what can be offered to them, or want to consider a number of alternatives, to come along to the event and find out more.”
