T Level in Education & Childcare



Our Education & Childcare T Level at Shipley College is not just a qualification, but a gateway to a whole new world of possibilities!

Immerse yourself in practical learning, and gain valuable industry experience through extensive placement hours in the workplace. If you thrive in being hands-on, this T Level route is perfect for you.

Discover the principles of observation, recording, and assessing child development, and dive into topics like legislation and safeguarding. You will learn about working with parents and agencies, and about supporting children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

This T Level opens doors to apprenticeships or university. You may be offered a permanent position by your placement employer, or you can become an Early Years Practitioner, embark on a journey towards primary school teaching, engage in full-time nursery positions, or make a difference as a teaching assistant. It is therefore ideal for school leavers passionate about working with or educating children!
