T Levels – how will it affect optics?

12:30 - 13:00

The new Technical or T Level qualifications are due to start in 2020 and we would like to forge connections with employers now and show the benefits to them for having a student as well as what the benefit to the student would be for such placements. We would like to invite local employers and ambassadors to know more and we are interested to know of any employers who are keen for students to be part of their company.

Learning Objectives

  • An outline of the advantages of the new T level system over traditional A level qualification
  • An understanding of how to make the optics component has been implemented into the T level to allow better recruitment
  • An outline of the effects and benefits of T level Healthcare Science can have on a business.
