DO NOT DELETE OR EDIT THIS ROW OR ITS CONTENTS

New for 2023 - In the last three years, the COVID pandemic has taught us that healthcare and healthcare sciences are vital to the UK. The T-Levels in Health and Science focus on the technical skills needed for the future of this fast growing sector.
What is different about these courses is the fact they have been designed and built by employers from the ground up to be a high-level technical qualification that is the equivalent of three A-levels, including all the cutting-edge real requirements for working in the modern workplace. This is THE new gold standard for vocational education. You’ll learn in a way that’s different from school where you’ll be developing team and professional skills to get you ready for employment as well as all the essential knowledge needed for the sector of your choice. You can choose from four pathways.
Psychological wellbeing and an individual’s mental health is right at the forefront of society. Do you want to gain early insights into the practice and theory behind our mental health? If so, this might be the course for you if you interested in working in the health and wellbeing sector.

What will I study in Supporting Mental Health Teams T-level?

The content of the Health T-Level has been built from the ground up by employers, and so there is no better way of ensuring that you have the employable skills necessary to excel. This includes learning the most up-to-date knowledge and understanding of what it means to work in the health sector. You will gain a deep understanding of biology and what makes living organisms from cells to human beings tick. You will grasp detailed knowledge of the jobs roles within the sector, including laws, regulations and how health systems all work together to keep people safe and healthy. Unique to the T-Level, you'll get the chance to learn practical skills like clinical tasks or taking physiological measurements, and how these can be used to give people the quality care they deserve.

On the Mental Health pathway, you will specifically study these areas:

  • Assist with an individual’s overall care and needs to ensure comfort and wellbeing
  • Assist registered health professionals with clinical or therapeutic tasks and interventions
  • Undertake a range of physiological measurements
