Additional considerations for Education and Childcare
There are currently no mandatory additional requirements for T Levels, but this is being kept under review through the development of the programme. There are, however, some supplementary recommendations for some specific T Level courses that a could be beneficial to some students for their industry placement, or as they move on to a job.
As a college or school delivering T Levels, you can decide whether to include them in your T Level programme.
- DBS basic or enhanced checks and disqualified disclosure
Where required, students should complete this check before they start their industry placement.
- Safeguarding training
Colleges and schools should ensure that students do any relevant safeguarding training before they start their industry placement.
- Food and hygiene (for the Early Years Educator occupational specialism only)
Dependent on the nature of the industry placement, it may help students to do some relevant food and hygiene training before they start.
