At Cronton Sixth Form College we are committed to ensuring that all students realise their academic potential. We also recognise that our students set their ambitions high and must be equipped to compete within the most prestigious professions.
Progression to prestigious universities is becoming increasingly competitive and entry into the top professions demand that students can demonstrate high level employability skills. To ensure that our students can realise their dreams, we have a unique programme of study which will equip them to compete with the very best and prepare them to be true professionals.
These individually designed programmes have been developed by specialists in their professional fields with extensive experience of supporting students in their career development.
Students completing a professional studies pathway will be stretched and challenged academically to ensure that they achieve the very best results whilst developing essential professional skills which will set them apart at university and in future employment.
How Does It Work?
The Professional Studies Programme is delivered in addition to your subjects and will form part of your timetable, providing up to four hours per week of targeted specialised activity. In some cases additional qualifications can be achieved, and some of this time will be spent on work placements or entering national competitions.
You do not need to put the Professional Studies Programme on your initial application form, but if you would like to be part of one of the programmes you will need to discuss this at your admissions interview. The admissions tutors will work with you to make the right A Level subject choices to access university degrees in these professional areas and make sure that the Professional Studies Programme is right for you.
