Education and Childcare: Assisting Teaching T Level
This T Level enables a practical route onto a wide range of degrees and courses related to working with children including teaching, social work, or psychology.
As part of this course, you’ll have a placement in a local school that will give you the opportunity to gain real industry experience and skills you’ll only get from being in the classroom environment.
After this two year course, you will have gained practical industry experience, as well as a recognised industry qualification as a Level 3 qualified Teaching Assistant.
T Level qualifications are equivalent to studying 3 A Levels and carries UCAS points, so you could progress to a university degree rather than immediately entering the workforce.
