T Level Health – Supporting the Mental Health Team

T Level Health and Social Care T Levels are a 2-year qualification that you can do after your GCSEs as an alternative to A levels, other post-16 courses or an apprenticeship. They have been designed with leading businesses and employers to give you the knowledge and skills you need.

Your T Level will be worth UCAS points (a T Level Distinction* is worth the same as 3 A levels at A*) and will be recognised by universities and other education providers so you can choose to continue studying if you wish.

Opportunities within healthcare are rising, with a predicted growth of over 290,000 jobs by 2024, which means that now is a fantastic time to get into this rewarding sector.

Careers in healthcare are fulfilling, making a real difference to the lives and welfare of others. If you’re caring, compassionate and supportive, then you’ll be well-suited to a career in this sector, with plenty of opportunities to progress and climb the career ladder.
