  • Who is the course for?

    This qualification is designed for post-16 students.

    The purpose of the Level 3 Technical Qualification (TQ) in Education and Childcare is to ensure students have the knowledge and skills needed to progress into skilled employment or higher level technical training relevant to the T Level. The T Level is the equivalent of three A Levels and therefore will carry UCAS points.

  • How is the course assessed?

    To achieve this qualification, the student must successfully demonstrate their achievement of the Core Component and one Occupational Specialism Component.

    In order to achieve a grade for the Core Component, the student must attempt both of the external examinations and the employer-set project. The combined marks from these assessments will be aggregated to form the overall Core Component grade. The student is required to successfully achieve a Distinction/Merit/Pass grade in one of the Occupational Specialism Components.

  • Where next: Job Opportunities?

    Students who achieve this qualification could progress to the following, depending on their chosen Occupational Specialism:

    Early Years Practitioner

    Education Technician
    Primary/Secondary/Tertiary Teaching and Support Assistant

  • Where next: Further Studies?

    T Level study programme is eligible for UCAS points. Please check the UCAS website for more information on courses in Higher Education options.

    Progression onto lower level apprenticeships may also be possible in some circumstances, if the content is sufficiently different.

  • What skills will I need for the course?
