What to expect

Third six pupils are allocated a pupil supervisor and are encouraged to take part in our weekly advocacy sessions alongside our 12-month pupils.

Chambers offers a support network to both pupils and third six pupils which include pupil liaison officers. Pupil liaison officers are recent tenants able to offer support and able to answer

questions. Our current pupil liaison officers are Joe Davidson and Rebecca Cohen.

Chambers also encourages pupils and third six pupils to contribute to chambers blog.


Third six pupils will be invited to apply for tenancy towards the end of their 6-months.
