The event is primarily for pupils and their parents/carers in Years 10 & 11. We feel that it is vital that parents/carers are involved as they are major influencers on the choices their children make. Invitations will be sent directly to the parents f the young people in all of Bury’s High Schools. Other young people looking for education and training will be informed about the event by the DWP and we would encourage to attend early on before it gets busy.
