Placements Fostering employability

Professional Placement Programme

At Macmillan Academy Post 16 students have the unique opportunity for career exploration through the Professional Placement Programme.

Using current labour market information, the top growth career areas in the north east have been identified; – engineering, health, finance, law, procurement and teaching.
Interested students apply for placements, attend a graduate –level assessment centre, and get professional feedback and a personal psychometric profile.

Post 16 is aware of how competitive the market place is and the benefit to a student if they are prepared for the world of work. The academy is currently working with the following employers, James Cook Uni Hospital, Jacksons Law Firm, Santander, Specsavers, Calm Digital and Marks and Spencer.


We believe we are the best Sixth Form provider in the local area. But don’t just take our word for it. Our results speak for themselves. In 2016 we had a 100% pass rate with 55% of our A level entries being A*-B grade.
