Over 30 students from Brighouse Sixth Form College and 20 local employers took part in a schools and business networking event with keynote speaker, MP Craig Whittaker, pictured with, left, Karen Fox of the Entice Project and Brighouse High head teacher Liz Cresswell.

The event was an opportunity for 6th form students to find out about apprentice programmes and to engage with local employers.

Brighouse High has a reputation for excellent impartial careers advice and guidance and was delighted to be asked by The Entice Project to host this event. Feedback from students was overwhelmingly positive. Year 12 student, Alex Dallas-Wood, said “I networked with different businesses, learning what they are and what they do and was offered a visit to two businesses. This is helping me determine which career path I will choose.”
