The core element of a T Level in Science will boost your knowledge in a range of topics such as the principles of good scientific and clinical practice, as well as fundamental scientific concepts; not to mention your understanding of standard operating procedures, management of equipment and work areas, stock control and storage, the importance of quality standards, health and safety. And as the science industry is so innovative, you’ll gain a better understanding of the world around you.
You’ll then choose a specialism designed to support your interests, so you can get deeper into your chosen subject and build up the skills you need for for your future job. You can choose from specialist modules such as Laboratory Sciences, Metrology Sciences or Food Sciences.
Then you’ll be able to put everything you learn into practice, with a substantial industry placement of around 45 days. Giving you an amazing opportunity to work with an employer while you study, such as a chemical, pharmaceutical or biotechnology company, and gain invaluable experience as well as key skills that employers are looking for.
Following a T Level, you could progress straight into a skilled profession or continue your studies with a degree or higher apprenticeship. Career options might include becoming a technical support scientist, a metrology technician, or a food technologist.
