Careers at HAB6

At HAB6 we support our students to complete the destination that is right for them. 6th form students follow different careers programmes in year 12 and year 13 to prepare them for the future. In year 13 all 6th form students are assigned a careers tutor who supports them in preparing applications to ensure they are well supported in accessing the opportunity of their choosing. In addition to this, students will benefit from an external careers advisor.


The university route continues to be the most popular destination at HAB6. To support students, they will complete a series of lessons during tutor time to guide them on how to write an effective personal statement in year 12. All students in year 12 are set up on Unifrog and are assigned tasks to help them discover the world of higher education.

Once applications have been submitted all year 13 lessons complete a series of financial literacy lessons that will support them in how to make an application to student finance and how to budget. As well as this, students will be prepared on how to choose their firm and conditional offer and what the process of results day looks like. 

Work Experience Placements and Apprenticeships

All students will complete a work experience placement at the end of July. They will be supported in finding a placement. Students may choose to complete additional work placements with partnerships established at the school with companies such as EPR Architects, Moorfields Eye Hospital. Participating in programmes such as these has allowed students to secure apprenticeship placements. Blueprint and Construction Youth Trust work closely with the Sixth Form to provide students with the employability skills to thrive in any work placement.

With companies such as CTM pathway, Speakers for School and Access Aspiration students are supported to find work experience placement tailored to their interests. Apart from this by the end of year 12 all students will have been taught how to complete a CV and a cover letter. As well as this, in the autumn term year 13 are taken to What Career, What Uni which provides students with a final opportunity to talk to a vast amount of apprenticeship and university providers.

HAB6 parents

At HAB6 we understand the importance of working in partnership with parents to ensure students access the career pathway that is right for them. At the end of year 12 all parents are invited to an information evening.
