Level 2

T Level Foundation Year in Health and Science


This course prepares students for progression onto T Level’;s in Healthcare Science or Health, or the level 3 extended diploma in Health and Social Care. It has been developed in collaboration with health and care employers, so the content meets the needs of the industry and will prepare you for the workplace. It will provide you with all the skills and knowledge you will need to enter a career in the health or care at assistant level, and you will leave with a level 2 certificate in Health and social care, as well as the chance to retake any GCSE’;s in English or Maths that have not been passed at a 4. The course will involve a mix of classroom / laboratory-based learning as well as a focus on employability skills as well as academic skills and a large element of work experience in order to practice those skills in a relevant environment.

Learners should plan to be either in college or on placement for 4 days a week between 9am and 5pm on weekdays. Placement times can vary according to the setting. Holidays cannot be sanctioned during the college term. 100% attendance at college and placement is expected as this is a challenging course.


Entry requirements are 3 GCSEs grade 3-9 (or A*-D) including English Language, Mathematics. A satisfactory reference and a clear DBS check is required. We will also consider those who have a previous level 1 qualification in Health and Social Care along with 3′;s at GCSE in English, Maths.

It is a requirement of the industry that all those working and/or training in the healthcare sector must undergo a Disclosure Barring Services Check (DBS) at the enhanced level. Please be aware that if the DBS check comes back, with anything being flagged that may be of some concern, your application could be withdrawn following a meeting with the Head of Learning.

Access to a computer or laptop would be extremely advantageous.
