For students aged 16-19 who are not ready to start a T Level but have the potential to progress onto one, this study programme is specifically designed to develop the skills, experience, knowledge and behaviours to support progression onto a T Level.
This course includes time spent in the workplace, enabling you to apply your studies in a range of suitable settings, improving your knowledge and developing key employment skills.
A minimum of five GCSEs at grade 3 or above, including maths, English and science.
This course is full time for one year and you are required to complete a minimum of 36 hours in a work placement setting.
You will learn in an informative and interactive way, with classroom study, together with online and face to-face support. Your class work will be continuously assessed. You will also need to complete a minimum of 36 hours work experience in a health and social care setting, where you will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills that you have learned in the classroom, under the supervision of expert practitioners and teachers, who will also assess your capabilities. Most learners will achieve more hours, enhancing future employability prospects.
You can continue on to the Level 3 T Level, progress into an apprenticeship or find employment in the sector.
