At Expanse Learning Wigan School, we strive to achieve the best outcomes for all our students by ensuring they get the necessary support to make well informed, realistic decisions about their future through careers education, information, advice, and guidance.
The school careers lead is Mr Paul Bamber. If any parents, pupils, staff, or external agencies have any questions or feedback please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact school reception on 01942 877715.
You can access our school careers programme via this link:
Every student in the school has a one-to-one careers meeting with our impartial career’s advisor, Diane Norburn. Year 11 students have two or more meetings during year 11 as we understand it to be a key transition year for them and we encourage parents to attend this where possible. If any parents would like to have a meeting or discussion with Diane, you can arrange this by contacting Paul Bamber on the email address above or via school reception.

Labour Market Information (LMI) is a useful tool to help our students research future jobs in the local area, understand the skills needed for certain roles and the demand for future employment. The following links are useful resources to find out more about the labour market.
