Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Download course information in PDF format


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.

Previous work

Maths & English

A key requirement for future progression and employment is a good understanding and application of knowledge and skills in both English and maths.

Key attributes required by employers are that individuals be reliable, motivated, presentable, organised, articulate, and caring. We work on all these areas throughout the duration of your transition framework, and your tutor(s) will provide feedback on progress made, as well as areas for development.

Work Experience

You will be expected to attend an years or primary setting one day per week from October. Plus block placements. 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?

Learners who successfully complete the transition framework can progress to the T Level Programme in Education and Childcare or an apprenticeship.
