Questions and answers

T-Levels are a two-year qualification that will give young people a head start toward the future they want.

They bring classroom learning, an extended industry placement and practical learning together on a course designed with businesses and employers. Students will spend 80 per cent of the time in high standard technical classrooms and workshops at Lakes College. The remaining 20 per cent will be spent on an industrial placement with an employer to assist with the development of knowledge and skills which companies look for.

A T-Level programme is equivalent to three A-levels. They are aimed at young people who will be finishing their GCSEs in June 2021 and want the knowledge and experience to get straight into employment or an apprenticeship. T Levels also attract UCAS points meaning learners can go onto university after completing the course.

On the first year of the two-year programme there will be a number of units studied, including Health and Social, Health Science, Anatomy and physiology; infection, prevention and control; managing patient’s information.

In year two, students will study a specialist pathway. The most popular is Supporting the Adult and Nursing Team, and there is also Supporting the Midwifery Team; Supporting the Mental Health Team; and Supporting the Therapist Team.

All students on the course will study a 45-day placement in a clinical setting where they will gain real-life experience, learing skills of working on a ward.

Prior to this, they will experience the replica ward-settings at the college to prepare them for the working ward.
