The T Level Transition Programme provides a high-quality route onto T Levels, for students who would benefit from the additional study time and preparation that it will give them before they start their T Level and to achieve their Maths and English GCSE at grade 4.
All students will be able to demonstrate all three vocational outcomes by the end of the programme:
- Outcome 1 Plan play, learning or educational activities for children and young people within a specific age range
- 2 Prepare environments for children and young people’s play, learning and educational activities
- 3 Observe children and young people’s learning and development within a specific age range
You will also complete a Level 2 qualification in Working with Children in Early Years and Primary.
How will I know how I am doing?
There will be GCSE Maths and English externally assessed exams for those who do have a grade 4 or above. There will be internal exams (multiple choice short answer and extended answer questions.) for the vocational outcomes. There will be an internally assessed project and work placement observation.
What do I need to join?
As well as having a keen interest in the subject area, learners will need to possess GCSE grade 3 in both English and Maths.
Learners will need to show a positive attitude towards working with children and young people and be committed, punctual and demonstrate an enthusiasm for learning and taking on new ideas and skills. Evidence for this will be from a reference from a nursery work experience placement for a minimum of 3 days.
You will also need an enhanced DBS.
How will I learn?
You will learn through taught lessons with power point presentations, discussions, reflection, reading, writing, quizzes, projects and practical activities.
Maths & English

Our Work Placement Team will assist learners in gaining a placement and ensure that you are on track to achieve, whilst liaising with your course tutors to ensure that the opportunity to practice necessary employability skills is available at college
What can I do next?
