Role of Department
The role of the Careers Department involves providing strategic leadership and management of the personal and impartial careers guidance to young people. Beyond this, the Careers Department plans and implements a strategy for developing a careers program for Brummana High School (BHS) that meets helpful, good practice and prepares young people for the choices and transitions in education, training and employment after graduation. This is done through a number of methods from events such as university fairs and career days, to individual meetings and preparations with students, parents and staff for the purposes of continuing education and opportunity beyond graduation. The various elements of the school’s careers program are coordinated and managed through a stable and embedded program. They are also responsible for ensuring that the careers program continuously improves and that it delivers the kinds of impacts that are needed for young people. This means paying careful attention to feedback from all stakeholders as well as to the destinations of the students being counseled.
BHS has traditionally had strong acceptance rates with numerous universities both domestically and abroad which include King’s College in the UK and Harvard University in the USA, as well as the American University of Beirut and Lebanese American University here in Lebanon. The Department works continuously to create meaningful partnerships and inroads with universities near and far. BHS has consistently produced the well-rounded student that universities of today are looking for, the Department merely helps shape and guide student aspirations to meet the reality that each person can and will achieve success at the university level.
BHS achieves this through the use of individual interview and guidance with every student, informational nights for parents and students, annual careers and university fairs and preparation for the SAT by means of practice and extra sessions for our students via experts in the field. At BHS, you can rest assured knowing that your child’s future is in good hands.
