60 %

Are you looking to launch a career within the health and care sectors? This course will give you knowledge and skills you need. It offers the perfect blend of theoretical study and hands-on work experience, with the opportunity to work on the frontline of the NHS and with local health and social care facilities and providers.

We work closely with the local NHS trust in giving students valuable industry experience.

T Levels have been developed in collaboration with employers to meet industry needs. They are a Level 3 qualification equivalent to 3 A Levels and offer you a balance of classroom theory, practical learning and a hands-on industry placement. You will spend 80% of your time in the classroom and the other 20% in the workplace. T Levels also carry UCAS points to take you on to university.
