Course Overview

The T Level is a ground-breaking two-year Level 3 study programme that offers students a mixture of classroom-based learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience. A Vocational alternative to A Levels and Apprenticeships, the T Level has been launched as part of the Government’s review of Vocational education, under the Skills Plan. They have been collaboratively developed by the Department for Education (DfE), the Institute for Apprenticeships (IfA), education providers and employers.

The T Level includes a core of knowledge and skills needed to work in the sector, a technical qualification, a substantial work placement of at least 750 hours over two years, as well as English, Mathematics and digital content.

What will I learn?

The knowledge and skill you will learn include:
• Working in the Health Sector
• Safety and Environmental Regulations Related to Health
• Managing Information and Data within the Health Sector
• Key Scientific and Clinical Practices
• Core Health Science Concepts

There will also be sector specific content around supporting healthcare roles, including adult nursing, depending on the specialism chosen, which could include adult nursing, working with children and vulnerable adults
and mental health.

The content of the Health T Level is designed to get you ready for a career in the Health sector, one that is identified as having a skills shortage both regionally and nationally.

How will the course be assessed?

The T Level will be assessed through a range of methods including external exams, coursework and external assessments - including an employer set project.
