Sixth Form Work Experience and Careers Guidance

We are partnered with Access Aspiration, a Mayor’s Fund for London programme, to provide our sixth form students with a comprehensive work experience programme throughout their two years with us.

As part of this partnership, all sixth form students receive a compulsory programme of in-school work related learning support:

  • Access Aspiration introduction assembly, in which the programme is introduced and students are shown how to create their own Access Aspiration personal account
  • Two industry speakers describing their career and route into their current career
  • A mock interview day
  • An employability workshop
  • A speed networking day with industry professionals

All students will also receive the opportunity to sign up for Business Insight Days or Work Experience placements with the businesses in partnership with Access Aspiration across the course of their two year sixth form experience.

All Sixth Form students receive a Morrisby account login-for-life. Morrisby is a website which provides students with careers guidance, options at 18 and planning tools to support their career progression throughout their adult life.

121 Careers Interviews

All Sixth Form students will receive independent careers advice from our external careers advisor.

Students will be able to talk about their aspirations, skills and experiences. Using this information, every student will receive a bespoke careers action plan to use as a roadmap to achieve their goals.
