Careers & Future Pathways
As a sixth form, we are committed to providing our students with the best advice and guidance towards their future pathways that we can. With that in mind, we work towards the Gatsby Career Benchmarks.
Throughout their time in the Sixth Form, students are guided through a host of career and futurepathway events and activities. Dedicated careers advice is available and is complimented by university trips, visiting speakers from the Apprenticeship Service and nationally based providers, a dedicated careers library, UCAS and Apprenticeship application support, as well as regular contact with their own tutor. Students are also expected to undertake a period of work related learning experience that is linked to their future ambitions.
According to Ofsted (2016) ‘more learners than ever are achieving higher grades and going on to top universities’. This still rings true today in 2018, with students over the years leaving us to study a range of courses including medicine, law, languages, mathematics, and midwifery. Leaving students attend universities here in the East Midlands and afar, with some 30% each year attending a Russell Group university. For some of our students, the university pathway is not desired, with students often taking on Higher Apprenticeships with some of the biggest employers in the East Midlands.
Below are just some the of useful sites that students are signposted to throughout their time in the sixth form.
