Where will your future take you? 

The majority of you will progress to higher education after leaving Durham Sixth Form Centre to a variety of universities and colleges, including the highly competitive ‘Russell Group’ and other leading non-research based institutions. We have excellent links and partnership working with all of our local universities, who offer specialist academic support, mentoring programmes, masterclasses, guest speakers and more. 

We are also dedicated to supporting those of you aspiring to professional vocational careers through a specialist programme to help you succeed in applications for primary teaching, social work and NHS careers such as nursing, midwifery and radiography.

Some of you will choose to pursue higher level/advanced/degree apprenticeships and employment in a range of career sections such as engineering, civil service, IT, police civilians, retail and business management. For you, we offer an alternative range of specialist programmes, providing links with local businesses and opportunities to enhance your success. These include work placements, mock interviews, assessment days, workshops, talks and “fast-track” schemes. 

The Careers, Progression and Aspirations Team at Durham Sixth Form Centre is a dedicated, professional and friendly team committed to helping you maximise your potential, realise your aspirations, and make the right decisions to secure your future career pathway.
