T Levels

T Levels have arrived at New College!

Our first student cohorts are now studying our T Levels in Health, Childcare, Digital and Lab Sciences, in fantastic new facilities including a mock hospital ward with triage rooms, a nursery, a wet lab and cyber lab.

They have been developed in partnership with employers and benefit from the unique insights of industry leaders. This means that learners will have the skills and knowledge needed to compete and get ahead in today’s job market.
