About this course

T Level in education and childcare will allow you to develop your knowledge and understanding in a broad range of topics such as child development, safeguarding and special educational needs, as well as learning about the role of families and support agencies.  It’s a diverse and fascinating subject, and you’ll be able to delve into the specifics of social interaction, how language is acquired and understanding behaviour.  You’ll also build your skills in becoming a reflective practitioner with an understanding of the broader context of education.

You’ll then be able to choose a specialism, which is designed to support your interests and ambitions to progress in a specific area. This is where you can get deeper into your chosen subject, developing and practising the skills needed for an occupation.
