Pathways at W6
The majority of our students follow Level 3 courses; A-Levels, vocational or a mixture. These are all two-year courses which lead directly to university, apprenticeships, further training or the world of work.
From September 2021 we are also offering a range of enterprise-related subjects which could be taken at Level 2 to provide a foundation year leading to Level 3. This is a similar approach to most universities that offer a foundation year for those students who need just a little extra time to reach the required standard. Students who follow this pathway will spend three years in the sixth form.
The Level 2 Pathway is a good choice for students with an interest in business, media and also IT. It is a great option for students thinking about working in business or setting up their own business. The IT qualifications also provide hands-on skills needed in the modern business workplace.
The table below summarises your options. To see which pathway is for you, please look at the entry requirements page.
