Pupils in Year 9 of Bolton School Boys’ Division spent the afternoon on a careers carousel as part of the school’s innovative SPACE programme. A range of industry professionals, two of them Old Boys of the school, spoke about their fields of work and reflected on their own individual career path. 

Chris Norman of C N Software spoke about software development and how it has permeated so many walks of life as well as his own career, working for large companies, start-ups and as a consultant. Jordan Harrison-Twist, who left the Sixth Form at Bolton School in 2009, offered a thoughtful presentation on the meaning of art, how it allows you to escape the everyday and considered the various career opportunities in the creative arts. Samuel Dunn talked about careers in football and sport, telling the boys that the sports' industry currently generates £350bn per annum. He spoke about his employer, UCFB, which was originally sited at Burnley FC’s ground for its first three years before opening campuses at Wembley in 2014 and the Ethihad in 2016. Eraina Smith of Stockport Council talked about a career in civil engineering – focusing on her own career in the construction industry, she told how it offered a wide base and you could keep moving to different projects and specialisms.
