Personal Adviser and young person

Young people's careers information, advice and guidance

Connexions personal advisers

Careers information, advice and guidance for young people in Bolton is provided by Connexions personal advisers, who are part of the local Connexions Careers Service.

Connexions personal advisers’ primary role is to provide careers information, advice and guidance to young people.  They work closely with other local organisations to make sure that young people receive specialist help and advice to overcome any problem or issue that is stopping them from making good progress with their education and future career choices.

Young people can see a Connexions personal adviser in the following locations:

  • Local authority secondary schools (including special schools and schools with sixth forms) if the schools have purchased a service from Connexions Careers Service Bolton.
  • Connexions Centre at The BASE (young people aged 16-19 and up to 25 for SEND young people)
  • Connexions Access Centre in Farnworth  (young people aged 16-19 and up to 15 for SEND young people)

Connexions personal advisers also provide additional help and support to the following groups:

  • Young people at risk of becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training)
  • Young people with special educational needs
  • Looked after children
  • Young people in Pupil Referral Units (PRUs)

Moving On

An ESF NEET Project (2016-18) for Bolton young people

Moving On is an ESF programme that Connexions Bolton Careers Service as a partner of Career Connect is delivering across Bolton. The project is for young people aged 15-19 (or up to 24 if you have a learning difficulty and/or disability). Connexions will be working with over 400 young people up until March 2018 who are not in education, employment or training or who are at risk of becoming so, offering support to progress into education, employment or training including apprenticeships and traineeships.

Some of the benefits for participants are:

  • Opportunities for personal development
  • A varied programme to re-engage with constructive activities
  • 1 to 1 support from a careers adviser to progress into education, employment or training
  • Gain an accredited qualification
