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