Due to the high-level academic nature of the T-Level and the considerable industry placement element totalling a minimum of 315 hours, the course is also designed to allow you to progress directly in to the healthcare industry. In addition, you may consider undertaking a degree Apprenticeship in nursing as an alternative route.

Who is it for?

Health is a vital field that we all depend upon as the Covid pandemic has clearly demonstrated to us all. This T level is a 2 year course, equivalent to 3 A Levels but with a more vocational focus in Adult Nursing and designed to provide you with the skills, experience and knowledge required to progress into a career in Adult Nursing.

You’ll gain in-depth industry experience via a work placement in the healthcare sector so you have more focus on vocational skills development than A Levels. This will help you into skilled employment in Health, or progress to University or an Apprenticeship.
