Fullbrook 6

Fullbrook is fortunate to have it’s own dedicated 6th Form where many Year 11 students choose to continue studying for A-Level. Students can choose from a wide range of courses including subjects that follow on from their GCSEs and completely new areas of study which align well with the knowledge built up to Year 11.   Fullbrook 6 also benefits from a self contained building which creates a small college atmosphere offering lots of facilities for exclusive use by Years 12 & 13 such as private study areas with ICT resources, comfy common room with its own coffee shop.

In Year 11 students get to experience life in Fullbrook 6 through a taster day which takes place on one of the scheduled Deep Learning Days.

BTEC & Apprenticeships

Not every student feels that an academic course is right for their next step after, and at Fullbrook we aim to provide extensive access to information on alternative opportunities which can be pursued after GCSE and A-Level. A BTEC course or Apprenticeship scheme offers a more hands on & practical learning path for young people which can lead to vocational qualifications in a chosen career.

BTEC (Business and Technology Education Council) is a qualification that focuses on practical study which has a career focus, and can be studied in conjunction with GCSE & A-Level courses or as a standalone qualification. You can find out more about BTECs on the Youth Employment website.

Apprenticeship is a scheme which offers individuals the opportunity to learn on the job whilst earning a wage, and studying for a career related qualification. They last for a minimum of 12 months but can take up to 4 years depending on the qualifications that are needed to complete the apprenticeship, or how the learning is spread out. You will typically be working between 30 and 40 hours a week, including time spent attending college for your qualifications.

You also can learn more about Apprenticeships by viewing a helpful video from Innervate here.

Alternative Places to Study

Students sometimes prefer to move on to a different college to continue their educations.  This may be because Fullbrook isn’t able to offer the courses they wish to study, because they wish to pursue a more vocational path, or sometimes it’s as simple as the college is closer to where they live. Whatever the reason, Fullbrook will always do what it can to help students make the decisions that are right for them. See our list of alternative education providers below for details of their website and any open events that are coming up.
