Please take the time to read our testimonials for our Careers Programme.
'We work closely with Rivington & Blackrod High School and enjoy providing support with all aspects of their careers programme, regularly attending careers fairs, mock interviews, presentations and running bespoke workshops for the students. The careers lead is always eager to further our working relationship and develop new ways to raise career aspirations for the students, both post-16 and post-18. Careers events are always well attended with high volumes of curious and open-minded students. I look forward to developing the relationship between the school and Alliance Learning.'
Alliance Learning - Training Provider
'As a Student Recruitment Officer for Manchester Metropolitan University I have worked closely with the Sixth Form/Careers team to organise HE Information sessions for Year 12 and Year 13 students at RBHS, including in-school presentations on Degree Apprenticeships, Personal Statements and Interview Techniques.'
Manchester Metropolitan University - Higher Education
'Careers are really helpful and supportive. There are lots of opportunities to access careers events and activities. I have taken part in a personal statement workshop, university visits, personal guidance sessions. They think about what you need and want to achieve as a person, what your aspirations are and then put things into place to help you.'

'It has been a pleasure to return to my old high school to provide help and guidance to the students about the various routes to a career in law. It is good to be a real-life example of achievement from my RBHS beginnings to a partner in a law firm and to work with the school to show the students that, with the supportive environment provided by the school and with their connections to the wider community, they can accomplish anything they put their minds to.'

'As a parent I have been extremely impressed with the careers advise and support within school over the last year. My son has attended multiple events and also had a personal guidance interview that was organised within school. This was an enjoyed event giving the children experience and opportunity of a real life interview and what to expect. There have been multiple events within school for the children and also good interaction for the parents. We found the website was full of information and easy to use. The staff were very responsive to emails and any questions, and were always in attendance at event. Together we have gained great knowledge on different career prospects and further education paths from both internal and external providers organised within school. Events have been interesting and informative and conducted in a professional manner, with a great range of external business and career path providers present. Thank you!'
