The UCS 6th Form
The UCS 6th form is focused on our specialism of Engineering and Health Sciences, allowing us to offer a smaller and more dedicated range of qualifications delivered in purpose-built facilities within college and our partner organisations, with further redevelopment taking place over the next academic year.
Our combination of A Level subjects and Technical courses prepare our students for further education, work and apprenticeships in these areas, with some of our students attending the top universities in the country following their courses with us.
The UCS 6th Form Study Programme
At UCS 6th Form students are required to undertake a full study programme to combine their academic or vocational qualifications with additional opportunities to both challenge the student and prepare for the next steps in their careers, whether that is higher education, an apprenticeship or training, or into employment. This study programme will include:
Level 3 qualifications - following our Technical or A Level Pathways
Personal development sessions – covering relationships, health, safe behaviours, careers and further education, personal finance
Employability Skills - including student council, voluntary work, project based learning, lower school mentoring, student leaders, online study programmes
Work Experience – 2 week minimum placement in Year 12 with additional opportunities throughout the year and employer engagement activities. Students completing T Levels will have a minimum of 45 days work placement.
Deadline for applications is 31st January 2024 to guarantee an interview due to limited places on specific courses.
Interviews will begin from 1st March.
