What do employers and other
stakeholders look for ?
“…what you find sometimes
is younger people come to
you and they’ve not got
business skills. They might
be equipped and have a
degree in whatever they’ve
got a degree in, but they’re
not very business savvy,
commercially savvy…"
(Employer)

“…in the future there will be a
range of providers post-16…each
of those providers really needs to
specialise and excel in providing
and doing what they do well…
The sort of world in the past
where one college tried to
provide everything for everybody,
for all people, has probably been
overtaken now.” (Head teacher)
“So locally-based providers should be preparing the
people of Bolton to stay here, work here and we
would really benefit in this town from young people
with enthusiasm on the entrepreneurial scale...”
