The Careers department offers assistance with a range of different educational and employment programs.

At Belmont High School we aim to prepare our students for future transitions and challenges. Our objective is to provide students with quality accessible career information. Our Careers website intends to give students unlimited access to appropriate career education. Belmont High Careers can be found at

The website provides a wealth of important information from post school options to work place learning. Students can create an online account where they can login to completed career tests, resume', cover letters and a career plan. There is a wide-range of resources for both student and parental use.

Belmont High School has an innovative Career Education program for students. Our Career program aims to encourage students to be actively thinking and generating future pathways. The 21st century is a dynamic, evolving environment. Students need to have comprehensive transferable skills which will adequately prepare and create opportunity for future success.

Belmont High students in Year 10 participate in fortnightly Career Education lessons. These lessons aim to partner career education, career development and student wellbeing by delivering information on educational pathways to future directions.

Lesson content includes;

  • The World of Work
  • Future Directions- subject selection, TVET, SBATS & University information

  • Workplace literacy and numeracy

From the lessons and programs available, students can learn and gain valuable skills along with building their portfolio which can be added to their resume'. The school encourages students to get qualified with regular White Card and Provide First Aid courses (see below for dates).
