SOLIHULL Sixth Form College is launching a brand-new course, with a T (Technical) Level course in education and childcare, due to start in September 2023.
T level qualifications are relatively new courses.
They are two-year qualifications that are equivalent to a student undertaking three A levels.
These courses involve a work placement and the T level in education and childcare involves three days per week in college and two days a week on a placement.
Education and childcare teacher Lianne Alcott said: “This is an outstanding route into a career working with children.
“The course involves 750 hours of real-life, hands-on work experience. It gives learners the skills they need to forge a really successful career.
“They can choose to either go straight into work or progress onto higher education before pursuing employment.
“I would urge any GCSE students who are thinking about a career in this area to come along to the college’s Open Day on Saturday 15 October to find out more. Staff and students will be on hand to answer questions.”
