Welcome to our Careers site at Brighouse High School

Introduction to the Careers Website 2017

This site has been developed to help students with future Career Choices, Year 9 Options and Post 16 Options whether they stay on at 6th form, go to college, do an apprenticeship or go into the World of Work. Students are welcome to come and browse in the Careers Library on the mezzanine in the Literacy and Media Hub (LMH) at Finkil Street.  There are computers available for Careers work/research which are dedicated solely for Careers work during the lunch period.

Sixth Form students – whether you are applying for University, getting further training or applying for jobs, this site is here to help you.  In the Resource Centre at the Sixth Form Centre there are a vast range of books providing further information regarding Careers.
