Health: Supporting the Therapies Team, T Level

This T Level programme is an ideal choice if you are looking for a rewarding career in the healthcare sector. This dynamic programme combines theoretical knowledge with practical experience, providing you with a holistic understanding of the healthcare industry. Through a blend of classroom learning, simulated scenarios, and industry placements, you will acquire a wide range of skills and competencies essential for success in various healthcare roles.

The program covers a diverse range of topics, including anatomy and physiology, healthcare practices, infection control, health and safety, and communication skills. With a strong focus on real-world application, you will have the opportunity to gain practical experience in healthcare settings, working alongside professionals and applying your learning in a hands-on environment. By completing the T Level, you will be well-prepared to enter the workforce with a solid foundation of knowledge, practical skills, and a deep understanding of the healthcare industry.

T Levels are designed to provide a technical alternative to A Levels and are developed in collaboration with employers, ensuring that courses meet industry demands and equip students with the precise skills valued by employers in specific sectors. These two-year courses are equivalent to three A Levels, illustrating the depth of learning involved. One of the distinguishing features of T Levels is the minimum 45-day industry placement, allowing students to gain practical experience and develop essential employability skills. With their unique blend of classroom learning and on-the-job experience, T Levels offer students a clear pathway to rewarding careers in their chosen fields. You will learn how to help registered practitioners to deliver healthcare services to adult patients in a variety of settings. Accordingly, you will become proficient at carrying out a range of clinical and non-clinical healthcare or therapeutic tasks that are required in a healthcare setting. Training will equip you to follow standards, policies, and protocols in order to provide high-quality, compassionate healthcare to the best of your ability. As a Healthcare Practitioner, it is essential to treat people with dignity, to respect an individual's diversity, beliefs, culture, needs, values, privacy and preferences, and to show respect for those you work with but have the courage to challenge any areas of concern.

The Health & Active Living Skills Centre at Loxton Campus is purpose-built to provide an exceptional learning experience and to meet the demands of the industry. The centre’s cutting-edge facilities include a simulation training hospital ward and hi-tech medical mannequins, allowing you hands-on experience with clinical procedures. Industry-leading virtual reality headsets and 360 video software immerse you in real-world healthcare scenarios.
