Bolton - Leavers given job-hunt help

8th January 2010 at 00:00

Hundreds of Year 10 and 11 pupils in Bolton are being helped to find jobs or training for when they leave school, under a new #163;1.7 million scheme.

The Pathways 2 Success programme is aimed at reducing the number of young people who end up as Neets - not in education, employment or training.

It offers 400 pupils from five schools help with CV writing, interview skills, opening bank accounts and budgeting.

Rachel Glazebrook, head of George Tomlinson High School, said: "The programme works because we share a common goal - helping young people become responsible and mature citizens and develop themselves to their full potential."

The scheme, created and developed by Bolton Lads and Girls Club and funded by the Department for Children Schools and Families also addresses pupils' health issues and provides them with one-to-one support. WS.
