Students to return to the college campus - Y12 11th March / Y13 12th March
T-Levels are new, two-year, technical study programmes, designed with employers, to give young people the skills that are needed within 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 course starts with the essential knowledge and skills to work in science or healthcare including how the industry works, core scientific concepts and key regulations including managing information, health and safety and good scientific/clinical practice . You will study key scientific methodology whilst enhancing your practical skills of working with experimental equipment and developing the appropriate techniques for this.
During the second year of the programme, you will complete an occupational specialism in Laboratory Sciences. This component will guide you to develop and perform a range of appropriate scientific techniques to collect experimental data in a laboratory setting, enable you to comply with regulations and requirements alongside identifying and resolving issues with scientific equipment or data errors.
Many of our students go onto study within higher education with this qualification leading to careers in employments such as a science technician, food technologist or laboratory technician.
Five 5s at GCSE, including at least 5s in English Language, Maths and Science.
The T-Level will take up your full study programme; no further courses will be studied alongside.
