Who is it for?
This Health T Level specialises in providing you with the knowledge and experience to support you in getting into a career in the mental health sector. This specialised course arms you with all the specific skills and competencies healthcare employers need. The college has worked with industry leaders to develop this two-year course to prepare you for an active role in the health and science workplace.
You will need to have a minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including English, maths and science. You must be positive, dedicated, and enthusiastic with excellent communication skills. You will also need to apply for a DBS check. (Please Note - If you are interested in other strands of nursing, such as children’s nursing, mental health, midwifery, or paramedic science, you should choose the Health & Social Care Diploma. This pathway has been developed to help meet the national shortage of adult nurses).

The first year of the T Level comprises of:
• Working in the Health care sector
• Infection control
• Health and safety
• Person-centred care

Your study programme will consist of working towards the digital technical qualification, coding modules, projects, industry placement(s), trips and visits, speakers from industry and universities, preparation for progression, and enrichment activities.
How is the course assessed?
You will be assessed using a variety of methods including placement, Employer Set Project, 2 exams, practical activities, presentation skills, teamwork and communication skills and a professional discussion.
By the end of your course, you have the skills and knowledge to step confidently into a mental health sector role. Your T level also prepares you to progress to a higher level apprenticeship or a degree, giving you a choice of progressions.

Level 3 Extended Diploma in Health & Social Care
Previous school: The Priory School
I’m the regional district cadet of the year for St John Ambulance and what that means is that I have quite a lot of clinical experience, as well as a lot of skills that I’ve acquired through just talking to people. When my tutor found out about my volunteering, she encouraged me to enter the WorldSkills Show to show my transferrable skills and work on my personal development.
Health & Social Care BTEC (A Level Sociology and Psychology)
Previous school: St Dominic’s School
I have completed two placements at Shortwood Primary School as part of my studies. This has helped me to decide on my future aim of becoming a Primary School Teacher. I enjoy Health & Social Care as it helps me balance out my workload.
Health & Social Care BTEC (History, Sociology)
Previous Institution: The Priory School
I took Health & Social Care because I want to be a primary school teacher. It is an assignment based course, so there is less pressure and you get to do amazing placements for hands-on experience and I went to a primary school. I will be going to study BA Primary Education after College.
