Career Hub

Welcome to the Careers Hub at Peebles High School.

Here you will find information and links on careers. It’s full of useful sources of help to find you a long-lasting and fulfilling future after school. If you are not sure what you would like to do after school please look at our localised Career Index. This is an index of careers of actual people living locally that tell their story and help give insight into how they got to do what they do and what their real job is like.

We can put you in touch with these people, possibly help you get work experience and also perhaps you could meet them as many of them come to our Annual Careers Fair in the Autumn. In addition there is information about the S3 work experience programme and an overview from the school about the plans from 2016-17. We hope you find it useful.
