College Open Days

Crompton House are to hold an Open Evening on Thursday 25 October. There will be three sessions over the course of the evening, the first being at 5.00 pm, followed by one at 6.00 pm and the final session at 7.00 pm.

College Prospectuses

We have only a small number of College prospectuses for the local Sixth Form and FE Colleges, this is due to the fact that out stocks were used for the Careers Fair and Pathways Evening last week. I am expecting to take delivery of new stock after half term.

We also have copies of prospectuses from Crompton House, Pendleton College, Eccles Sixth Form College, Manchester College, Salford College and Media City available from the LRC.


I have taken delivery of the current Apprenticeship Guide for the Rochdale, Middleton and Heywood.

There are currently 250 apprenticeship vacancies and 44 traineeship opportunities available currently in our local area. Those pupils who are interested in following an apprenticeship should check the website out (see link below) regularly. Although you may not yet be eligible to apply for any of the vacancies, it is always useful to know what opportunities could be open to you for future reference.


The website is updated on a weekly basis and displays a range of apprenticeships in all areas of employment.

We will be holding lunch time drop in sessions in the near future for anyone who is interested in taking up an apprenticeship after leaving Hollingworth. This will give you the opportunity to obtain information and guidance on how to apply for an apprenticeship, as well as help with application forms and personal statements. I will of course let you know when these sessions are to take place.

Application Forms

Paper application forms for The Manchester College are now available in the LRC.

Writing your Personal Statement

If you are struggling with what to include in your personal statement, please call into the LRC where help sheets are available on request.
