Subject Info

All pupils study Careers Education for one period per week in each of their five years in Brownlow. Our aims are: to help pupils get onto the correct pathway, to develop the skills and qualities of our pupils, to get our pupils ready for life after BIC and to help them make the correct career choices. As a department, we have links with outside agencies including Young Enterprise, Sentinus, the Army and the Careers Service. All of these agencies help to give the pupils a more all-round careers education experience.
