I've recently attended two events at Bolton College, The Jobs and Skills Fair and the Bolton Vision Conference, both very different but both hosted very well, with the venue proving to be ideal for both....
Excellent service delivered to the people of Bolton! Always striving to improve how and what they deliver! Bolton College really is for Bolton people.
it is warm and wonderful place to continue your studies and the tutors give as much support as they can
As a maturer lady I was daunted by the prospect of going back to college. On my first visit I was made to feel very welcome and comfortable. I was treated with respect by students and teachers.
The support of the tutors and staff at Bolton College during my teaching course was amazing
