About this course

This course is suitable for anyone wanting a career in health and healthcare.

T Levels are made up of three elements:

The core, comprising route and pathway core components, provides a variety of knowledge and skills relevant to the health route as a whole, as well as the occupational specialisms within the health pathway. Some of the core topics and ideas are broken down and contextualised in more detail within the occupational specialisms, allowing students to apply the knowledge and skills in their own specific context.

Each occupational specialism component covers the knowledge, understanding, skills and behaviours required to achieve threshold competence in a chosen occupational specialism . Threshold competence refers to the level of competence deemed by employers as sufficient to secure employment in relevant roles.

Industry placements are a mandatory part of the T Level qualification, and you will complete a minimum of 45 days, enabling you to gain valuable industry skills that employers are looking for and support with your next steps onto high levels of study or into employment.
