How will I learn?

The T-Level program will be taught in a way that immerses you as a worker in the sector. You will learn just as a health worker would, like working in teams and through practical demonstrations of skills. The ways that you showcase your talent will also be much like an actual health environment: with independent work, presentations and written reports.The classroom environment should be one of co-operation; teachers and students working together to get the most out of your qualification.

There is a large work experience component, designed to make sure that you have the best possible chance of securing your progression into work or further education as you proceed from the T-Level. You will be required to have undertaken 315 hours of work experience by the time you finish, and the focus on this will be to learn skills and competence on the job, as well as giving you a chance to reflect on your strengths and areas for development.

How will I be assessed?

The T-Level is assessed in a variety of ways all with the needs of employers in mind. Your core component is assessed through two written exams as well as a project that you will complete based on a brief given from employers. Your occupational specialism is assessed through 'synoptic assessment' which is based on you demonstrating skills you've learned.

Any trips?

Trips are to be confirmed at this stage, but trips could involve visiting health settings, or visiting universities to look at their healthcare programmes.

Are there any costs involved?

You should expect small costs for stationery and booklets to assist with the course. There may also be costs to pick up uniforms for practical work or to use at work experience.
