Course Overview

This T-Level course is for students who wish to pursue a career in adult nursing. T-Levels have been introduced gradually over the last 3 years in England as a route into a wide number of health related careers. As this is a new course the content is aligned with the skills and knowledge required to work in adult nursing right now and in the future. Students will be able to utilise specialist equipment in bespoke classrooms and take part in classes where they will learn about a wide range of important factors to prepare them for transition to industry. Industry Work Placements play a vital part of the T-Level programme and students will spend over 315 hours with 1 or 2 employers over the 2 years. The knowledge and skills taught and developed in the classroom can be refined during this time and designated industry professionals will support students to progress and become competent. Upon completion of this qualification students will have threshold competency meaning that they will be ready to enter the workforce but will require further training once they have done so. As this T-Level qualification is the equivalent to 3 A-Levels and carries the same amount of UCAS points as these, progress onto a related university course is a possibility.
