Improve Your Employability

You will already know that in the Sixth Form you are not in lessons all day every day. We offer a huge range of activities that you can get involved in outside of lessons that are aimed at developing your employability skills.

Being linked so closely to South Hunsley Secondary School presents lots of opportunities for you to help out teachers and younger students. In any course you study you can help Year 7 students in that subject, acting as a Teaching Assistant or general classroom support. Alternatively, you could choose to be a Student Ambassador and play an active role in promoting our Sixth Form, sharing your knowledge and experiences with school students at our Open Events as well as being an advocate for the Sixth Form at other important events. Either way, you are building up a great set of skills to add to your CV, Apprenticeship, Traineeship or UCAS application.
