Who is it for?
The T Level Foundation Programme provides a high-quality route onto T Levels for students who would benefit from the additional study time and preparation that it will give them before they start their T Level.
Our T Level Foundation Programme is a one-year course designed to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours to support progression onto, and success on, a T Level.
You will need a minimum of 3 GCSEs at Grade 3 or above, preferably including maths or English.
What does the course involve?
There is a T Level Foundation Programme to prepare you for each T Level subject area. You’ll learn about the different T Levels within this subject area and their career opportunities, so that you can decide on the correct T Level for you. T Levels have a broad range of potential progression outcomes.
The college will be offering a Foundation Programme to allow students to move onto the following T Levels:
• T Level in Health: Supporting the Adult Nursing Team
• T Level in Health: Supporting Mental Health
• T Level in Health: Supporting Midwifery
How is the course assessed?
A wide range of assessment methods will be used throughout your programme, including presentations, group work, assignments, observation of activity, scenario projects, and external assessments which will develop your confidence for the success on T-Levels.
Upon the successful competition of the Foundation Programme for your preferred T Level route, you would then be expected to go onto study the T Level route of your choice.
After T Levels, you could progress straight into a skilled job or continue your studies via an apprenticeship or higher technical qualification.

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.
Level 3 Diploma in Health & Social Care
Previous school: Shrewsbury Academy
I really enjoyed my placement at The Column Nursery. The staff there were very friendly and approachable. This placement has allowed me to develop my skills with younger children, which I think will help me whilst working towards my future career. I definitely recommend working with The Column Nursery.
Foundation Degree in Health & Social Care
I chose to study a Foundation degree in Health at Shrewsbury Colleges Group as I could study alongside my job at the time (in social work). I found the course manageable and worked hard to fit the work around my job/life. My tutors were super supportive as I was an adult learner returning to studying for the first time since school and things have moved on a bit since that time! I used the FD as a stepping stone to progress into a full degree in Health Studies at university and the skills learned enabled me to attain a first in my degree. I am now the co-owner of a business related to the health sector and have a great work/ life balance. I would recommend the course to potential students, young and old as I am not an academic person but was prepared to put the work in and it paid off for me.
