  • SLT link for CIAG (Mr M Singleton).
  • Careers Adviser who is dedicated to providing impartial careers information, advice, and guidance to students on all the options available to them.
  • Reporting to SLT and Governors.
  • A dedicated online platform providing a broad range of up-to-date information and online resources on key post-16 opportunities.
  • Attendance and active engagement at the Bolton CIAG Hub.
  • Establishing and developing links with FE Colleges, apprenticeship providers, University Technical Colleges, and universities.

Useful Information


 All pupils are invited to attend college transition days. These days are organised through our local colleges in the summer term of Year 10. Pupils will ‘sample’ different subject areas and learn about the different courses and facilities the colleges have to offer. These invaluable days help pupils to explore their options and prompt the start of the decision making process about which subjects they may wish to pursue post 16.

Having a clear understanding of their predicted grades at this time enables them to explore the entry requirements for the different courses and make sure they understand in advance, the expectations of them by the end of Year 11.

Thinking about your future and the career path you are going to choose is one of the most important decisions you will probably ever make.  You spend the majority of your life in your place of work, so choosing the right qualifications and training is vital.  In order to assist you to start to make those decisions, you can see
