Provider Access Statement

Introduction

This statement sets out the Academy's arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the academy for the purpose of giving them information about the provider's education or training offer. This complies with the Academy's legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997. Bolton St Catherine's Academy is developing very fast and we would like external agencies on board supporting us through this journey to achieve the best for our students.

 

Management of Provider Access Requests Procedure

An employer or provider wishing to request access, should contact Razia Begum, Registered Careers Leader.

Telephone: 01204-332533

Email: rbegum@boltonstcatherinesacademy.org.uk

Providers can also make contact via the 'contact us' section of the academy website.

 

Opportunities for access

We would like our students to develop high aspirations and consider a broad and ambitious range of careers. Inspiring every student through more real-life contacts with the world of work and further education establishments that can help them to understand where different choices can take them in the future. A number of events, integrated into the school's programme, will offer providers an opportunity to come into the Academy to speak to students/or their parents/carers. A more detailed outline of the opportunities that are provided for students can be found on our website.

 

COVID-19 Outreach support and events

Unfortunately, due to the continued social distancing measures in place, we will be unable to run our career provisions and events in June and July. We appreciate that during this uncertain time, many organisations are adapting to an ever-changing situation regarding COVID-19 and government restrictions affecting activity.

We have been working hard to find alternative methods of providing the information and resources needed to support our students as they consider their future opportunities. We welcome any new online outreach events that will enable our students to access a range of presentations, take part in live chats, virtual visits, open days and tours, activities or lessons. We welcome ideas and suggestions from our external colleagues in the best way to support Bolton St Catherine’s Academy at this time and look forward to continuing to work with you.  Please get in touch with Ms Begum – Careers Leader to forward any resources, information or support you can offer to our learners, teachers, and parent/carers.
