Choose your Career 6 Pathway

Career 6 pathways specialise in programmes of study within Crime & Society, the Teaching Academy or the Science Academy all of which have been put together with your future career in mind.

Our NEW Health and Medical Academy, International Business Academy and Cyber Security Academy pathways now give you even more of a choice to set your career path.

Our unique pathways offer clear progression into higher studies at university. We have used the latest careers information to select the right blend of qualifications to give you the best opportunity to be ready for the next level of study as well as gain valuable work and industrial experience in your chosen pathway.

Our two-year study programmes also include tutorials, project work, enrichment sessions, leadership tasks, career focused visits and trips as well as work experience.
