Our Health & Social Care Department have added a brand new qualification; T Level in Health, available for September 2021.
Working in Partnership with the Teaching NHS Foundation Trust, Wyke is opening this course up to students who are interested in pursuing a career in health – with a particular interest in Adult Nursing.
The course is two years in duration and is equivalent to 3 A Levels. There are two main elements to the qualification:
- Technical Qualification (Core Healthcare) – this is the main, classroom based element. Students will learn about their chosen sectors through a curriculum which has been specifically designed by the government and relevant employers. Teaching will also include Maths, English and Digital elements, meaning students are given a solid foundation of transferable skills.
- Industry Placement – students will take up a minimum of 315 hours (45 days) placement overall to give them the practical insights into their sector and an opportunity to embed the knowledge and skills learned at Wyke.
Your course will start with the essential knowledge and skills to work in health including how the industry works, core scientific concepts and key regulations including managing information, health and safety and good scientific/clinical practice. You will then be able to apply this knowledge and develop upon this during your industry placement and second year.
Jo Foster, Head of Health & Social Care at Wyke is really excited about this new qualification and the opportunities it offers our students:
“The T-Level in Health is a specialised programme which offers our students an incredible opportunity to combine classroom knowledge with real life experiences in various NHS settings. We are really looking forward to working in partnership with the Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust who are experts in their field, to provide support and guidance for our students to advance to the next stage of their study/career”
