Course overview

Want to work with children of all ages?
Are you thinking about a future working in childcare or education? Do you want to get a qualification that will help you progress towards further study and jobs in this field? Our Level 3 T-Level Education & Childcare course will give you the foundation you need to set you on the path towards your ideal career.

Focussing on working with children aged 0-19, the T-Level qualification combines learning in the classroom with gaining vital ‘on-the-job’ experience. As part of our two-year Education & Childcare course, you will gain core knowledge of subjects such as supporting education, health and wellbeing, safeguarding and Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND), as well as developing a range of technical and practical skills that employers are looking for.

The course will help you boost your employment prospects by gaining extensive experience on a work placement in a real-world environment. By completing this industry-recognised qualification, you could progress onto many different roles such as early years educator or teaching assistant, as well as gaining UCAS points to enable your progression onto study at university.

What else do I need to know?

T-Levels are a brand-new, 2-year qualification that you can study as an alternative to a traditional vocational programme. They bring classroom learning and an extended industry placement together on a course designed with businesses and employers.

What are the entry requirements?

You will require a minimum of 4 GCSE's at grade 4 or above, in subjects that are relevant to the course you'd like to study, including English Language. Alongside your course you can study Maths if you do not achieve a grade 4 at GCSE.

How is it assessed?

You will be assessed via externally set exams, assignments and work placement.
