“T-levels struck a chord with me personally as I’m passionate about giving opportunities to young people, and giving them the access to careers within the NHS and healthcare.

T-levels are innovative and offer young people valuable experience and rich learning opportunities while ‘on the job’ through the industry placement. It’s definitely a route I would have taken myself if this qualification had been available when I was 16!

I believe T-levels are a really positive step for our local community, particularly for those young people who might think Healthcare is an inaccessible route for them. The qualification provides the opportunity to take a first step into this sector and I find it heart-warming to be involved.”
