C6 Beyond the Classroom

At Capital 6 we believe that learning transcends the boundaries of the classroom environment. We are proud of our curriculum and the academic success of our students, and there is more to Capital 6 life than academic study. We believe in the all-round development of our students, the realisation of their potential and preparation for life in the wider world.

Work Experience

Work experience is an essential part of all study programmes. It gives and insight into working life, and provides skills and experiences that are fundamental to any progression route. Within the T level route, industry partnerships have formulated the specifications so industry placement underpins the learning. Within the Level 2 pathway, students participate in a one day a week work placement. Students studying BTEC will have work experience as part of an assessed unit. Students on all courses including A levels have a dedicated time period to complete a substantial work experience placement.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is an achievement award for any young person aged 14-24. A programme of activities develops the mind, body and soul in an environment of social interaction, team working and physical challenge (an expedition).

Students at Capital 6 have the opportunity to either begin the programme in Year 12 or to continue with their progress with DofE during their time at Capital 6.

NCS (National Citizen Service)

National Citizen Service (NCS) is open to all 16 and 17-year-olds in England.

It helps you build your skills for work and life, while you take on new challenges and meet new friends.It runs in the spring, summer and autumn. You’ll have a short time away from home and take part in a team project that will help your community.

NCS brings together young people from different backgrounds and helps them develop greater confidence, self-awareness and responsibility. It encourages personal and social development by working on skills like leadership, teamwork and communication.

Participants develop a social action project to deal with a local issue they’re passionate about, and spend 30 hours putting the project into action in their community.
