What is Health T-Level?

T-Levels are new, two-year, technical study programmes, designed with employers, to give young people the skills that are needed within the industry. T-Levels will provide a mixture of:

  • Technical knowledge and skills specific to their chosen industry or occupation.
  • An industry placement of at least 45 days in their chosen industry or occupation.
  • Relevant maths, English and digital skills.

The Health T-Level is designed to provide students with the knowledge and understanding of contexts, concepts, theories and principles relevant to the health sector. This will ensure students are able to apply their skills in a variety of contexts and for a variety of different purposes to support and develop professional competencies.

What Will You Study?

  • Working within the Health Sector
  • Core Science concepts
  • Good Scientific and Clinical Practice
  • The Health Sector
  • Providing person-centred care
  • Health and well-being
  • Health, Safety and Environmental regulations
  • Infection prevention control
  • Managing personal information

This is supported by a package of employability and enrichment opportunities to strengthen the core knowledge, skills and behaviours developed during your studies.

During the second year of the programme, you will choose an occupational specialism to undertake in either Supporting the Adult Nursing Team or Supporting the Therapy Teams (Allied Health Professionals). The Adult Nursing Team specialism will enhance your knowledge on how to assist the adult nursing team with clinical tasks and how to support individuals to meet activities of daily living. Whereas the Supporting the Therapy Teams (Allied Health Professionals) will allow you the opportunity to assist with the therapy and clinical support process, and provide advice to help individuals develop and improve their health and/or maintain skills for daily living in addition to carrying out a range of therapeutic techniques to support allied health professionals.

What Next?

Many of our students go on to study within higher education with this qualification leading to careers in employments such as adult nursing, ambulance support worker, healthcare support worker, physiotherapy, occupational therapy. The T-Level also allows students to progress to a higher-level apprenticeship in healthcare assistant practitioner, nursing associate or health play specialist or entry straight into the world of work with the Level 3 T-Level.
