Typically you will need 4 GCSEs at grade 3/D (or above), including a 3/2 (D/E) combination for maths and English.

Upon satisfactory completion of the course, you will be able to progress directly onto the Level 3 T Level in Education and Childcare.

Over the three years of your T Level journey you will gain a range of skills and substantial experience of working for employers which will give you a number of progression options, including degree programmes at university, skilled employment in more senior roles or higher-level apprenticeships that offer honours degrees as part of the programme.
