What is a T-Level Transition Programme
The T-Level Transition programme provides a high-quality technical equivalent to a level 2 qualification, combining science, maths, literacy and research. The T-Level Transition programme builds on our success rates with the awarding body NCFE, Cache.
Technical qualifications will provide students with the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to progress onto the full T-level programme. The core knowledge and understanding will be assessed through a level 2 Diploma in Applied Science, a level 2 Extended Project in Health Studies, maths for science programme and literacy skills for research.
The course is challenging, with learners expected to be self-reliant, taking responsibility for their own learning by producing well-researched and referenced submissions to meet course deadlines. Students are supported by an experienced team of lecturers, some of whom also work part-time in the Health and Social Care industry.
This course also requires a DBS which is organised through the College at a cost of £48, payable at enrolment and will incorporate a stand-alone, full first aid qualification at a cost of £26.
Core knowledge and understanding will be assessed through assignments, a research project and core skills through a practical employer-set project. In addition to this, maths, English and general digital skills will be integrated within the qualification in occupationally relevant contexts.
Four GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including English, maths and science.
