T Levels are new courses that follow GCSEs and are equivalent to three A Levels. They’ve been co-created by the industry you want to be a part of, so you can gain the knowledge and skills you need to leap ahead of the crowd and into your desired career. T Levels are new to East Coast College and will be starting in September 2022.

The core element of a T Level in Education and Childcare will boost your knowledge in a range of topics such as child development, safeguarding and special educational needs; as well as your understanding of the role of families and support agencies. You will also dive into the specifics of social interaction, behaviour, and how language is acquired, as well as build your skills in becoming a reflective practitioner.

You will then choose a specialism designed to support your interests, so you can get deeper into your chosen subject and build up the skills you need for your future job. You can choose from specialist modules in either Early Years Education, Assisting Teaching or Supporting and Mentoring Students in further and higher education.

Then you will be able to put everything you learn into practice, with a substantial industry placement for 759 hours. This will give you an amazing opportunity to work with an employer while you study, such as a school or nursery, and gain invaluable experience as well as key skills that employers are looking for.

Requirements

You will need to have achieved at least 5 GCSE’s at grade 4 or above including English Language.

Progression

Following a T Level, you could progress straight into a skilled profession or continue your studies with a degree or higher apprenticeship.

Career options might include becoming a Teaching Assistant, Nursery Nurse or Early Years Officer – our  careers advisors can help you choose the right path.
