Health and Science Specialist Occupations

We need input from employers and experienced practitioners to help ensure that T levels reflect the reality of the occupations they’re designed to serve – and so that they set young people up for success. 

We only need a few hours of your time to review, comment on or help write qualification and assessment materials.  You don’t need to be an education expert; that’s our job.  We’re simply looking for experienced practitioners in relevant occupations who can reflect on the knowledge and skills they need in their work.
