Internet Access

We offer free internet access and computer use in relation to employment, educational and training provision. You can also use dedicated software to help you decide which career might suit you best. You might also want to write and print a letter or create a CV. Someone will be available to help you use the computers.


We have a large display board in the front window of Houghton Connexions that displays a wide range of employment, educational and training opportunities. Once you've browsed through the opportunities available, staff will help you apply for them and can offer help with CVs and application forms.
