T-Level - Laboratory Sciences

Are you ready to join the technical revolution that is T-Levels?

The purpose of the T-Level in Health and Science 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.

A fully competent Laboratory Scientist will be able to work in a wide range of organisations, including but not exclusively, chemical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, formulated products, nuclear and analytical services. A Laboratory Scientist can carry out a range of technical and scientific activities which may include laboratory based investigations and scientific experimentation in their specialist field.

The course is delivered over 2 years:

  • The first year will comprise the core elements which are two externally marked exams plus the employer led project, graded in line with A-levels

  • The second year will be the occupational specialism - Laboratory Science graded as P,M,D in line with BTEC qualifications

  • In addition, there is an Industry based work placement consisting of a minimum of 315 hours.
