The Sixth Form Bolton is a vibrant specialist 16-19 Sixth Form College with circa 1800 students. We are dedicated to releasing the potential of our students and staff alike. We are committed to investing in you and your career development, join us and you can expect to be supported and encouraged at every step of your career: working closely with colleagues in a well-established and experienced department, one-to-one coaching, an excellent continuing CPD package alongside a developed staff wellbeing programme.  The Sixth Form Bolton has an excellent reputation, high standards and outcomes for its students and this is a real opportunity for you to make a difference in people’s lives.

In order to respond to the changing needs of employers, The Sixth Form plans to launch a brand-new Student Professional Growth Programme for the start of the new academic year. This programme will incorporate elements of high quality online personalised learning modules to support a career 'pathway’ of choice, as well as a series of ‘live’ sessions and opportunities to choose associated enrichment activities that would support their chosen pathway and personal development.

The professional growth programme will be available to students in both their first and second year. During their first year, students will have the opportunity to develop key employability skills which will strengthen their applications to university, degree apprenticeships and employment.  In their second year, the focus for students will be upon strengthening the necessary academic skills required for successful completion of their core study programme and for a smooth transition to higher education.

The Professional Growth Programme will include an online learning platform, where students will complete modules in relation to their chosen career pathway over a 30-week period.  All students will also undertake 6 weeks of live lessons, where they will develop skills such as teamwork and communication, through a variety of assessment-centre style activities.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic person to join our supportive and thriving department. We would like to hear from professionals who are passionate and enjoy encouraging and challenging students to achieve their personal goals and aspirations. Candidates should be able to take up post from August 24th 2022.

With a collective focus on ensuring that every student achieves their personal best, the Sixth Form aims to create a culture and ethos which promotes initiative, curiosity, creativity, confidence and independence in all our learners, we believe that Sixth Form is about more than just achieving academic success.

If this is the sort of environment you thrive in and you have the skills and motivation to guide and support students to both fulfil and possibly exceed their personal goals, then we would like to hear from you.
