Careers Support and Resources for Bolton School Pupils
Bolton School Careers

As part of National Careers Week, we have been reviewing the support, guidance and resources available to pupils in both the Boys’ and Girls’ Divisions of Bolton School. We found that pupils benefit from:

  • access to the comprehensive careers and Higher Education platform Unifrog, to a careers library, information guides and skills recorder
  • lots of careers talks from former pupils and industry experts, many re-watchable on our YouTube channel – these include short World of Work and Women of Work talks, A-Z Careers talks and longer Perspectives Lectures. Students in both Divisions also benefit from Alumni mentoring schemes
  • a Careers Curriculum which begins in Year 7, providing guidance on succeeding in the World of Work and developing interests into an individual career path
  • Springpod, a virtual work experience platform available to all students through sign-up. Year 11 and above pupils have access to extra opportunities. The platform also has a ‘subject spotlights’ tool to experience study of that subject at university
  • 1:1 support offered through activities such as Year 11 careers interviews, Year 12 mock interviews with employers and guidance on applications
  • during the Sixth Form, students benefit from tailored, individual support with their application to university and Higher Education and from HE webinars and advice sessions
  • boys and parents can find opportunities in the Careers and HE bulletins in the Head’s weekly newsletter and girls and parents have access to padlets that are packed with useful careers information for Years 7-9 and Years 10-13.
