Routes to university and employment



Djanogly Sixth Form


At DCA we want the best for our young people. We believe that our Sixth Form will create the right environment to allow our scholars to follow one of a number of successful pathways after their time with us at DCA:

For those considering a university education:

Our scholars who are looking to go to university once they leave DCA will be offered opportunities to visit universities from around the country. Our KS3/KS4 cohorts already have links with the University of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent University and University of Lincoln. This is also going to be offered to our sixth form cohort as well as the opportunity to hear from and visit other universities from further afield.


For those considering an apprenticeship:

For our scholars whose futures lie in the apprenticeship route; we will continue the work that our scholars receive in KS3/KS4 by allowing them to receive regular talks from employers and apprenticeship providers such as Nottinghamshire Police, the Armed Forces and the NHS. We will run this alongside our university programme to ensure that our scholars have a well-rounded knowledge of the routes available to them after their time at DCA.


For those considering employment:

For some scholars employment may be the path that they choose to follow after finishing with our sixth Form. We are here to support those scholars too. As well as supporting them with consideration to the above pathways we will also support those who wish to go directly into employment. We will listen to what our scholars want and also be on hand to support them should they choose to follow this path by helping scholars create a positive online presence through the use of LinkedIn as well as through C.V. and covering letter support.


For all our scholars:

Regardless of pathway choice our expert Careers, Pastoral and Teaching team will be on hand to support scholars in regards to their next steps, here are some of the opportunities every sixth scholar will receive at DCA:
