T Level Science : Laboratory Science

T Levels are new technical courses designed to give you a head-start towards the future you want. They follow-on from your GCSEs and are equivalent to three A Levels. They are two-year courses that have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares you for work, further training or study. They provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, further study or a higher apprenticeship.

About the course

T Levels offer learners a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience during an industry placement. You will spend 80% of your time in the classroom and 20% of your time on a 45-day placement to equip you with the knowledge and skills companies are looking for.

Science T Level includes the following core elements:
• Core theory, concepts and skills
• Specialist skills and knowledge for an occupation or career
• An industry placement with an employer All students will develop a general understanding of health and science:
• Working within the health and science sector
• Health, safety and environmental regulations
• Managing information and data
• Principles of good scientific and clinical practice
• Core science concepts including the structure of cells, tissues and large molecules, genetics, microbiology and immunology They will also learn about topics specific to science:
• Understanding the science sector
• Further science knowledge, including cell cycle and cellular respiration, enzyme and protein structure, waves, particles and radiation, rates of reaction, chemical analysis using relevant analytical techniques
• Scientific methodology
• Experimental equipment and techniques
• Ethics of science In addition to the core content, each student will study the laboratory science specialism. How will I be assessed? Core component:
• 2 written examinations
• Employer-set project (ESP)

What do I need?

You will need 4 GCSEs at Grade 5 or above including English, maths and science.

Where can I progress next?

T Levels will be worth UCAS points – a T Level Distinction* is worth the same as three A Levels at A* – and will be recognised by universities and other education providers so you can choose to continue studying at university or progress to employment or a higher level apprenticeship. This course is suitable for anyone interested in a career in science such as a pharmacist, biomedical scientist or radiographer.
