T-Levels are a brand new type of qualification designed to give young people a new two-year, full-time study vocational programme equivalent to 3 A Levels. These new qualifications bring classroom learning and an extended industry placement together on a course designed with businesses and employers, helping prepare students to meet the needs of industry and work. This is an exciting new course that has a mixture of technical knowledge and work placement to give you the skills and experience you need to work with children. You will learn about child development, observing children, working with families and special educational needs and disabilities. In addition to this you will also learn about child psychology, laws and different job roles within the education sector. We are offering the specialist route of Early Education and Childcare (ages birth to 5).
If you want to become a Primary Teacher Teaching Assistant or Nursery practitioner, then this is the course for YOU!This is a great opportunity for you to work alongside professionals, become part of the team and put theory into practice. It lets you find out if this is the career of your dreams.
The course is made up of a core unit and the Early Years specialism. What you learn in the classroom you will be able to put into practice in placement.
