At Pendleton Sixth Form College we are committed to providing opportunities for our students to excel.

Progression to top universities is becoming increasingly competitive. To be successful, our students need to be able to demonstrate a range of employability skills and experiences that can set them apart from other candidates. To ensure our students have the very best chance of success we have developed an innovative programme which will equip them to compete with the most elite and prepare them to be true professionals. The Pendleton Future Professionals’ Programme has been designed by specialist staff with extensive industry experience. These elite programmes of study provide an enhanced level of opportunity to challenge students academically and develop essential professional skills.

How does it work?
Pendleton Future Professionals’ Programme is delivered in addition to A-level subjects on the directed study day each week. Students will be assigned one or more specialist teachers and will receive a day of targeted support per week. Students will also complete additional qualifications, take part in specialised activities, apply for work placements, enter competitions and be considered for scholarships. There are several pathways to choose from, depending on your career ambitions. Due to the prestigious nature of the programme, places are limited to 20 per pathway.

How to apply?
Students who would like to apply for a place on one of our programmes will need to discuss this during their admissions interview. The admissions officer will discuss their subject choices and career options to ensure they are making the right A-level choices to make the best next steps towards their chosen profession. They will then be interviewed separately, complete an assessment and will be required to bring a copy of their most recent school report.
