Applicants must also successfully complete a mandatory assessment day.

After completing a T Level you could go on to an apprenticeship, higher apprenticeship, Higher Education and/or degree apprenticeship, or have the skills to enter full-time employment in all branches of nursing from adult and mental health to learning disabilities and paediatric or midwifery.
