WHAT SUBJECTS CAN I STUDY?
You can currently study a T Level in three different areas: Education and Childcare, Digital Development, and Health and Science. T Levels cover a wide range of vocations that help students gain the experience they need to get into the industry they aspire to be in. The courses we offer at Leeds City College are:
Put your compassionate nature to good use by learning the clinical techniques and practices of person-centred care. Students can specialise in the adult nursing, therapeutic support or mental health sectors.
EDUCATION AND CHILDCARE
Gain the skills you need to progress in education and childcare. You will learn about areas such as child development and safeguarding, and have the chance to specialise as an early years educator or teaching assistant.
DIGITAL PRODUCTION, DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
DIGITAL & IT
Develop your understanding of programming, cyber security, cloud environments and emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence.
COMPUTER GAME DEVELOPMENT
Ideal if you’re passionate about the web industry, games industry or working in a global business. You will learn the requirements, trends and technologies for computer programmers and general computing in an ever-changing world.
Ideal for anyone seeking a more hands-on route into a scientific profession, this course covers the essential knowledge and skills required for lab-based work settings. From key regulations to good clinical practice, this is a great way to put the theory you learn into practice.
WHAT IS A T LEVEL?
T Levels are a new two-year qualification that offer an alternative to A levels, apprenticeships and other 16-19 courses.
Each T Level is equivalent to three A levels and focuses on giving you the practical vocational skills employers look for when employing new starters.
This new approach simplifies technical education – blending classroom training and ‘on the job’ work experience so you get the best of both worlds.
Ultimately, it allows you to gain a qualification in a way that suits your learning style; a brilliant alternative to A levels.
From September 2021, we’ll be offering T Level courses in Building, Engineering and Construction; Onsite Construction; Digital Business Services; Digital Support Services; Science; Health; and Healthcare Science.
