T Level Foundation Year Education & Childcare

The T Level Foundation Year is designed to support progression to, and success on, a T Level. It’s aimed at students who would like to do a T Level but would benefit from additional preparation and support before starting one.

As part of the T Level Foundation Year learners will complete a Level 2 Diploma Early Years Practitioner qualification as well as working on maths or English GCSEs to work towards achievement of grade 4 or higher in both.

Learners will complete 250 hours placement in early years settings to develop knowledge and skills in working with babies and young children.
