At The Sheffield Sixth Form, we have developed a range of new and exciting career pathways for you to choose to study from that sit across seven different sectors.

Each sector is made up of three distinct pathways that directly align to careers and different specialisms, and has a carefully selected collection of related A Level subjects that feed into each pathway. The subjects that we have selected for each sector are based on the skillsets that careers information, universities and employers are highlighting as the most important.

Students will choose one career pathway to study from the sector that interests them most. The career pathways each contain two pre-selected, complementary A Level subjects. Students will then choose their third A Level subject from the collection of related subjects in that sector.

This means that you will be studying subjects that perfectly complement each other, helping you to gain the knowledge and skills for a place at university and a successful career in the sector you choose.
