The Health T Level Transition Programme Level 2 is a transition programme for Level 2 learners who aspire to work in the Healthcare Sector.
Its purpose is to help learners develop a broad range of knowledge, skills and behaviours that will help them to progress onto and succeed on the Health T Level Level 3.
The programme runs over 1 year of the year, 16 hours per week including English, maths and an industry placement.
The largest employer in the UK Healthcare Sector is the NHS, which employs more than 1.5 million people - placing it in the top five largest workforces in the world. There are more than 350 different roles available within the NHS.
A significant proportion of the sector's workforce is in independent healthcare. In addition to their private sector functions, these providers are increasingly contracted to provide services on behalf of the NHS.
The entry requirements for this course are:
- GCSE Grade 3 (D) or Functional Skills Level 1 in both maths and English
- An aptitude and keenness to progress onto the Health T Level Level 3
All learners will be required to attend an interview demonstrating their commitment to the programme, and evidencing their qualifications on entry, and sit a diagnostic test in both English and Maths.
If a Grade 4 in maths and English has not been achieved, you will be learning these alongside your Transition Programme with the expectation to have achieved this by the time you progress onto the chosen T Level.
As part of this programme an enhanced DBS check will be required for placement and as an industry requirement (provided by the College).
Please ensure correct information of any convictions is recorded on your course application so we can discuss this with you.
