We want to make sure that we are preparing you students for whatever pathway they chose to take.
If you wish to further your education, you may wish to go to a University or College. Some career paths may require you to have a specific degree, so it is important that you do some research to ensure you make the right decisions for you. We recommend you look at some of the following websites:
Apprenticeships combine the benefits of continuing your education whilst gaining experience and earning money in the world of work. They are tailored directly to your chosen career path, and they can often lead to you being offered a full-time job. There are also degree apprenticeships, where you finish with a University degree related to your chosen career.
3) Gap Year
A Gap Year is a year’s break before going to University. They are a time for gaining life experience through travel or volunteering. Universities often welcome post-gap-year applicants on the same basis as those going straight to university from Sixth Form.
You may decide to head off into the world of work full-time. You can apply directly to companies who are advertising vacancies, or sometimes it pays off to send in your CV and show a potential employer that you are interested. There are loads of websites out there to help you find the ideal job, so get looking!
Whatever path you choose to follow, the Sixth Form Pastoral Team is here to support and guide you through your decision.
