T Levels

T-levels are new, government-backed, career focused qualifications for 16- to 19-year olds. They’re equivalent to three A-levels and are also backed by hundreds of British businesses, who helped to design the courses.


We will be starting Health T-level qualifications in September 2023. You can also apply now for a ‘Transition to T-Level’ course.

Health T-Level

Designed to provide young people with the skills and knowledge needed for careers in the health and social care sector, these T Levels are a great opportunity for those who are passionate about helping others and want to make a difference in the world.

T Levels are designed to be equivalent to three A-levels and offer a mix of classroom-based learning and real-world experience. This allows students to learn the theory behind health and social care, as well as develop practical skills that are essential for working in the sector. The course will include a 45-day industry placement, giving students the opportunity to put their learning into practice and gain valuable experience in a real-world setting.

Upon completion of the Health and Social Care T Level, students will have the opportunity to progress to higher education or employment in the health and social care sector. They will have a comprehensive understanding of the industry, including the legal and ethical framework, and the practical skills they need to provide high-quality care.

The Health and Social Care T Level is an exciting opportunity for students who want to build a career in the health and social care sector. With a strong focus on practical experience, and a comprehensive understanding of the industry, T Level graduates will be well-equipped to succeed in this fast-growing and rewarding field.

Why study a T-Level?

Each two-year course has been designed with employers from multiple sectors and combines classroom study with a 45-day industry placement to prepare your child for the world of work, or further study like a higher level apprenticeship or university.


Every T-level is taught through a mix of classroom and workplace-based learning. Students will spend 80% of their time at college and 20% developing the skills needed for the workplace on  industry placement.


Understanding of the real world of work is incredibly valuable. As well as helping students to make more informed choices about their career pathway, they will gain experience that employers look for when it comes to hiring.


Students will build essential skills, such as teamwork and communication, for their future employment


Students will put their skills and knowledge into practice in the real world of work, and build contacts with with employers for future progression

Support and Advice

The College is committed to protecting all students and staff and therefore has a whole organisational approach to Support and Advice.


T-levels are a good option even if a student only has a rough idea of the career or field they’re interested in. The study and industry placement aren’t linked to a specific individual role or job. Instead a student will be given a broad exposure to an industry and the many different roles it offers.

Going straight into employment is one option after completing a T-level and all students will have a head start on the skills they’ll need in the workplace.

Alternatively they could start an apprenticeship or higher level studies including university. One T-level is the equivalent of three A-levels, so has the same UCAS points value.


T-levels give young people a great headstart in the field they’d like to work in. Many will move to studying a T-level straight after their GCSEs.

Other young people may benefit from more time to get ready to study a T-level. The Transition Programme has been created for just this purpose.

Lasting a year, the T-level Transition Programme can give a student the relevant knowledge, practical and study skills they need to then begin the T-level course of their choosing.
