The T-level technical study programme in Health is aimed at preparing young people for work, higher level apprenticeships or higher education. It comprises 4 key components:

• an approved technical qualification, which includes the opportunity to specialise in at least one occupational role

• a substantial industry placement with an external employer 

• employability, enrichment and pastoral elements

• in some cases, it may also include mandatory additional requirements (MAR), such as important licence to practice qualifications

The T Level in Health outline content has been produced by industry T Level panels based on the same standards as those used for apprenticeships and further developed by NCFE to equip students with the knowledge and skills they require to work in their chosen field. 

Entry Requirements

5 GCSEs at grade 4 or above including English and maths


Based at our Weybridge Campus, you will have access to industry standard, equipment and classrooms and will be taught by our industry qualified and experienced teaching team.

Course Details

Year 1- The core component includes  the following subject areas

Working within the health and science sector 

The healthcare sector 

Health, safety and environmental regulations in the health and science sector 

Health and safety regulations applicable in the healthcare sector 

Managing information and data within the health and science sector

Year 2- occupational specialism component. Students will choose between one either Dental Nursing or Supporting Healthcare. (The Supporting Healthcare occupational specialism includes

additional core content, plus one from options A to E).

  • Supporting Healthcare

Supporting Healthcare options are;

Option A-Supporting the Adult Nursing Team

Option B-Supporting the Midwifery Team

Option C-Supporting the Mental Health Team

Option D-Supporting the Care of Children and Young People

Option E-Supporting the Therapy Teams

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 is not applicable to Dental Nursing, where students will be required to achieve safe beginner status). Threshold competence refers to the level of competence deemed by employers as sufficient to secure employment in relevant roles.

Students are required to take part in a substantial industry placement that  runs for a minimum of 315 hours (45 days) overall and will give students practical insights into their sector and an opportunity to embed the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom.


The purpose of the T Level Technical Qualification in Health is to ensure students have the knowledge and skills needed to progress into skilled employment or higher-level technical training relevant to the T Level.

Industry Placements

Industry placements are a mandatory part of the T Level qualification, and you will complete a minimum of 45 days in a placement. This will enable 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.
