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 Healthcare Science will boost your knowledge in a range of topics such as principles of good scientific and clinical practice; as well as standard operating procedures, management of equipment and work areas, the importance of quality standards, and health and safety. Healthcare Science is critical, not only for the delivery of current healthcare, but also to develop innovative tests and treatments for the future.

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. For example, Assisting Healthcare will be one of the specialisms available.

Then you will be able to put everything you learn into practice, with a substantial industry placement for a minimum of 315 hours. This will give you an amazing opportunity to work with an employer while you study, in a laboratory, hospital or healthcare setting, and gain invaluable experience as well as key skills that employers are looking for.



You will need to have achieved at least five GCSEs at grade 4 or above including English, maths and science.


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 Clinical Analyst or a Healthcare Science Associate – our careers advisor can help you choose the right path.
