T Level in Health Level 3
Great Yarmouth Campus
FT / PT
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 Health will boost your knowledge in a range of topics such as the principles of good scientific and clinical practice, as well as fundamental scientific concepts; not to mention your understanding of standard operating procedures, management of equipment and work areas, stock control and storage, and the importance of quality standards, and health and safety. As health is one of the fastest growing industry sectors, you will have the chance to make a huge difference to other people’s lives and society as a whole.
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 including supporting either Adult Nursing, Midwifery, Therapy, the Care of Children and Young People, or Mental Health.
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 hospital or other 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 working in a Midwifery team or as an Ambulance Support Worker – our careers advisors can help you choose the right path.
